HRH Prince Michael of Kent opens Fit For a King at The Tower of London

26/03/2010

I was pleased to be invited to the opening of Fit for a King and the Treasure of the Royal Armouries, which is the latest exhibition at The Tower of London. The project is the latest in a long running, and judging by attendees’ very successful partnership between The Royal Armouries and Historic Royal Palaces.

The Exhibition was designed by Studio MB from Edinburgh www.studiomb.co.uk, working in conjunction with the Armouries team and other members of the team were Paragon Creative, The History Chanel and Verve display who were responsible for the graphic production.

We made some very large Inca cases; the project was managed by Allan Mitchell, which puts very modern display cases with the latest in LED lighting in the White Tower which is the oldest Medieval Building in the UK.  The exhibition is a good example of teamwork all the team are part of the Royal Armouries long term “framework” agreements which nurtures close working relationships within the whole team.

HRH mentioned in the opening address that this and the refurbishment of the exterior of the White Tower are another step toward the long term goal of fully refurbished visitors facilities on this site and thanked their key sponsors for this assistance on this and other projects.

I very much look forward to the next stage.
