Looking forward to Christmas? Experience a magical Christmas at the Royal Pavilion. The fires are lit, the candles are flickering, the spectacular Banqueting Room table is laid with after dinner treats and the palace is transformed with festive decorations and glittering trees. Dragons, birds, flowers and toys bring sparkle, glamour and Christmas cheer for all the family.

Royal Pavilion & Museums’ diverse collections include an exceptionally strong group of paintings and sculpture by English artist Glyn Philpot (1884-1937). This display explores the artist’s life, including his relationships with Henry Thomas and his patrons, his hope to reconcile the religious image with the contemporary and the modernising impact he had on portraiture.

Caricatures mocked the lighter and more revealing style of women’s clothing. Men were also ridiculed, especially the look of the regency dandy with his extravagantly tailored dark suits, tightly fitted breeches, high collared shirts with frilled cuffs and elaborate cravats.
