Beyond the Ropes: A Closer Look at National Trust Collections
Chelsea Old Town Hall, London, 7 July 2014

The National Trust looks after some 200 individual collections, with more than a million objects in its care. Together, they include nearly 14,000 paintings—the single largest collection in the UK. What can these outstanding collections tell us about the families who built them, and what historical and artistic narratives might they yet reveal? How have they been passed to the Trust, and how do they continue to grow? And are they beginning to benefit from the expansion of government incentives for philanthropy?

Join our panel of experts for an evening of discussion and debate about the National Trust collections, their formation and future. A drinks reception will follow the talk.

Thomas Marks (Editor, Apollo Magazine) and David Adshead (Head Curator, the National Trust), with more speakers to be announced.

Doors open at 6:30 and the discussion begins at 7:00. Tickets are £20 and can be booked here.
