On your visit you may also encounter pop up theatre event ‘Provocations & Revelations’ from award-winning performing arts company November Club as a group of timeless journalists have arrived at Wallington looking for story ideas and details to write special features for their papers and magazines, to celebrate – and question – the handover by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan of the Wallington estate to the National Trust in 1936.

You may encounter them both indoors and out…all you need is your map and you’re off…listen in on some of their conversations and eavesdrop on some key moments that shaped the handover of Wallington to the National Trust.
