An unusual project is being developed by a partnership of Hounslow Council and the William Hogarth Trust, with the help of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project team welcomes this chance to share with local people the ideas and designs they are working on, to hear what you think about them.

There will be short presentations about the history of the site and the proposals for an "exhibition garden" which will tell its story in planting and garden features. And the designs which have been developed for an elegant new building in a neglected corner of the garden will be displayed.

This space will make possible a programme of learning for schools and for adults, new events and activities for all ages, and will be available for hire.

The project will complete the work begun with the refurbishment of the House, completed at the end of 2011. The aim is to help the House become more sustainable in the long term. The new facilities will make it possible to generate some income to support the work of Hogarth's House and a new trained team of volunteers will help maintain the new garden and present the whole site for visitors' enjoyment.

Admission to the talk is free and all are welcome.
