An exhibition to celebrate 50 years since Standen became part of the National Trust, focusing on the story of how this beautiful example of an Arts & Crafts house was saved for future generations. Last admission is 4pm.

Booking not needed. This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.

Saturday 19 March – Sunday 15 May2022, 11:00 - 16:30

The exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the National Trust acquiring Standen. At the time when the house was offered to the National Trust in 1972, Victorian architecture was not necessarily considered architecturally important and this untouched example of an Arts and Crafts family home was at risk of being altered or adapted by a new owner. The exhibition looks at the people who were involved in saving Standen, such as the Grogans, and the Victorian Society and their instrumental role in saving the house so that future generations could enjoy visiting this wonderful late Victorian Arts and Crafts family home.

The exhibition will be open daily in the Servants Hall.
