Coming soon: 'The Word Defiant!' 

You'll see a very different story from May to October this year, as we shine a light on the significant book collection at Blickling, as part of the Trust New Art contemporary arts programme. Working with award-winning theatre company Les Enfants Terribles, 'The Word Defiant!' will use sound and theatrical design to explore the importance of books and the threat posed to them around the world.
