The Banqueting House, Whitehall, currently has an exhibition called 'Performing for the King: The Making of a Court Masque' , which runs from 19 July to 1 September 2013. The masque highlighted at the centre of the show is Aurelian Townshend Tempe Restored, but Jonson also makes an appearance. More information can be found at http://www.hrp.org.uk/BanquetingHouse/stories/palacehighlights/PerformingfortheKing/default.aspx
A related exhibition on court fashion, with some nice sidelights on masque costume, is also running at the Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, to 6 October 2013:
