Developing new audiences for the Royal Pavilion in Brighton
Turner retains a fascination and a focus for critical debate. His watercolour of The Chain Pier, Brighton, purchased by the Royal Pavilion from a private collection in America, is a significant addition to the city€™s public collections as well as the nation's heritage. It will be the focal point of a new exhibition this autumn. sam-culture is focusing on developing new audiences for this exhibition, including a familiarisation event for 60 group bookers.
In Regency times, visitors to Royal Pavilion were astonished at the flamboyant colours in its exotic interiors. New temporary displays in the Royal Pavilion explore the palace€™s innovative and radical use of colour during the Regency period.
