There is a wide range of properties belonging to National Trust in Dorset, from Lawrence’s cottage at Clouds’ Hill to the sumptuous Kingston Lacy and the iconic Portland House.  Each place has its own ambience with its appropriate furniture and fittings.

Who decides on the furniture and from where is it obtained?  James Grasby is the expert and he will describe the trials and triumphs of sourcing pieces suitable for period buildings in our area.

We are lucky to be able to re-arrange this talk, previously organised for earlier this year.
