What's new?

Monthly Archives: March 2019

We had a fabulous dinner at the Museum of the Order of St John this week, joined by HRH The Duke of Gloucester. The reception was in the medieval galleries and dinner in the magnificent Chapter Hall. We were thrilled to have so many new supporters for our work… A huge thank you to all who came and to our new Patrons: London will be the more beautiful and more precious for it.

We had a fantastic lunch for some new Patrons with Allyson McDermott, the country’s top wallpaper conservator & designer who has led projects at some of the greatest historic houses across the world. She is working on our project to restore the 18th century wallpaper at Boston Manor, in Hounslow, and talked about her research, analysis, and the traditional & contemporary techniques she’ll be using in restoring this rare west London scheme.
