Historic Royal Palaces - Performance for a King

History comes alive

Banqueting House

The Brief

Performing for the King – the making of a court masque was a unique family-friendly exhibition, held at the Banqueting House on Whitehall. We were commissioned by Project Management Agency, Fraser Randall, to create an integrated audio visual and lighting system for the exhibition, on behalf of Historic Royal Palaces.


Working with a mixture of stock, hired and new technical equipment, our team of engineers spent five days onsite installing and programming this uniquely interactive exhibition. As a result, visitors could not only watch the drama of a court masque unfold, but also work the scenery and become part of the performance.

The inside story

To ensure audio visuals were fully automated and played on-cue, our team utilised the latest in media server technology. These enabled the main show video playback, lighting and audio control, and control of other areas within the exhibition. To enable the daily rotation of actors and to cue the playback of a live show, our team devised a clear and reliable wireless remote solution.
