Lecture 10th MAY


Chris Garibaldi, Director of the National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket, looks at the
museum’s collections as they illustrate the history both of Newmarket and the ‘Sport of Kings’
across the UK from the early 17th century to the present day. Chris examines the history of
Palace House, the last surviving element of Charles II’s racing palace in Newmarket.
He looks at the royal history of the site through documents and works of art,
as well as highlighting the museum’s ambitious plans for its redevelopment.
