Knole visitor experience, finding relevance in a 400 room medieval house
Knole is a singular piece of English heritage, which represents many of the challenges of heritage engagement: physically inaccessible, cold and dark, fragile, significant but not showy, not firmly associated with stars or storylines. £45m was spent on capital and conservation works and our director, Dee Halligan, was tasked with developing an approach to visitor engagement and interpretation, ideally an approach which could have relevance across the National Trust.

WHAT WE DO
We’ve curated exhibitions, delivered activity programmes and publications, and shaped the purpose and identity of the organisations and institutions that house them.
Facing uncertain futures, we’ve been speculating about cities and high streets, museums and shops, communities, work and education.
We’ve designed workshops and facilitated conversations, enabling big, complex and/or diverse groups of people articulate and shape their ideas
We create tools, formats and programmes, that motivate and inspire learners to unlock their potential and shift their horizons
