Seaton Delaval Hall appeal

We are raising the curtain at Seaton Delaval Hall. The Hall was the theatrical backdrop for the lives of the famous, and often infamous, Delaval Family and was Sir John Vanbrugh’s last great commission.

Raising the curtain

This important property, at the heart of its community, remains at risk if we cannot continue essential repairs and conservation work. The £7.8 million project will restore the Hall and the surrounding buildings at greatest risk, improve the visitor facilities and bring to life the dramatic history of the property through a community engagement programme.

How the appeal adds up

  • We received 19,826 donations to help acquire Seaton Delaval Hall in 2010
  • We need £7.8million to restore the hall and surrounding buildings at risk
  • The project will allow us to usher in 120,000 visitors to Seaton Delaval Hall every year
