This digital model is a speculative reconstruction of the performance of Richard II in St George’s Hall, showing the temporary theatre structure, the distribution of the audience, and the use of the space.

The model uses precise measurements and photography of the room as it is today alongside watercolours, letters, and diary entries from the 1850s. Explore the 3D model to find out about the space and put yourself in the queen's seat, or in Charles Kean's position on stage.

The video below offers some further context for the performances at Windsor and our digital reconstructions.
