Details

Discover more about the fascinating relationship between chocolate and royalty in this talk from Historic Royal Palaces’s curator, Polly Putnam.

Polly Putnam is the collections curator responsible for Hampton Court Palace and Kew Palace. She helps uncover the stories of the people who lived and worked in our palaces and finds ways of displaying objects to help tell those stories. Polly specialises in post 1700s works of art and I am particularly fond of silver, glamorous textiles and chocolate.
