"Henry V" was performed at Court, at Whitehall, on 7th January 1604/05.
Ben Jonson's "Masque of Blackness" had been performed at the previous
day, on Twelfth Night, 6th January 1604/05, and I would suggest that the
Banqueting or Masquing House was thus not available.  I suggest that the
performance of "Henry V" could have been in the Whitehall Cockpit, and
that it held the vasty fields of France.

The first recorded performance of Henry V at court is as part of the
Christmas Revels on January 7th, 1605.
