Since its foundation in 1952 The Attingham Trust, an educational charitable trust, has enjoyed outstanding success within the worlds of arts and heritage.  The alumni of its courses make up an influential, international network of professionals, many of whom represent major cultural institutions.

The Trust currently runs three annual residential courses, The Attingham Summer School, The Attingham Study Programme and Royal Collection Studies and, in alternate years, two non-residential courses, French Eighteenth-Century Studies and The London House Course. In September/October 2021, the Trust is also running a special 5-day programme to study the country house in Norfolk. These courses are highly regarded by museums, universities, historic preservation societies and architectural practices throughout the world.


Close attention continues to be paid to Government guidelines. The Summer School, Royal Collection Studies and Libraries course 2021 are now postponed until 2022. The Study Programme, the Norfolk House course and French 18th Century Studies currently remain on track for 2021 and are fully booked.
We are running a series of on-line events connected with our courses, with links to our past talks. Please check our News and Events page for details.
We hope you are keeping well during this unprecedented time and send best wishes to you all.
