Historic Royal Palaces Podcast


Historic Royal Palaces are a team of people who love and look after six of the most wonderful palaces in the world. This fortnightly podcast brings you the history and stories of those palaces.

You’ll hear from our experts and the people who bring our palaces to life, as we create space to explore how history moves us, telling stories about the monarchs you know, and uncovering the lives and histories of the people you don’t.

Just like our palaces, this podcast is a mix of old and new. Each episode will have a different feel, from previously recorded live talks, to exciting new discussions and discoveries. You’ll have every opportunity to share in the history we love.

The well-known nursery rhyme cautions us to ‘Remember, Remember, the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason, and plot’, but what does the Gunpowder Plot really mean to us today? 

In this second episode of our two-part series on the Gunpowder Plot, Curators Charles Farris, Brett Dolman and Alden Gregory explore how the plot was foiled, and whether the 5th of November still holds relevance to us now.
