Chiswick House

In 2005  English Heritage planned the first Chiswick House Festival. Literally across the road from this splendid Palladian folly, in the Borough of Hounslow, is a housing estate. This fabulous project enabled local children explore the house and its history and to create a story which they then performed in it. Also inspired after a trip to see The Woman in Black in the West End, there’s was a spooky tale…

As one of the Project Facilitators, this was a wonderful opportunity to break through barriers of us and ‘them’.
