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. These courses are highly regarded by museums, universities, historic preservation societies and architectural practices throughout the world.
The Attingham Trust is closely monitoring the evolving situation on the development of the Coronavirus, following advice from the UK Government, the FCO (UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office) and the WHO (World Health Organisation). All candidates awarded a place on one of our courses were contacted in early March. Since then, we have very sadly had to cancel the Study Programme in June and Summer School in July and those candidates have been notified. We will be running the same programmes in 2021. The decision on whether to run Royal Collection Studies, the Libraries course and French Eighteenth Century Studies in September and October this year will be reviewed in due course. If cancelled, all payments made to the Attingham Trust will be repaid in full. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this unprecedented situation and we send best wishes to you all.
