The National Trust

National Trust

I have worked with the National Trust on a number of their properties including:


  • Upton House
  • Chirk Castle
  • Southwell Workhouse
  • Plas Newydd­­­


Challenging ideas

This has included putting forward new ideas to challenge the existing ethos of the National Trust, for example developing a storyline and presenting it in such a way that visitors can pick up, touch and use artefacts – something that was a complete anathema a few years ago.


Targeting younger visitors

I have also advised on developing a more direct offer targeting younger visitors, creating what might be described as “NT Lite”. While this sub-brand does not visibly exist the formation of kids’ zones is now more prevalent.



I also provided training for volunteers on how to devise story-led and themed guided tours around properties.
