Hart of the Wood
Visit Comer Woods on 25 June for a day of folk art and culture, exploring humanity's relationship with the woods.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Hart of the Wood is a bold new multidisciplinary, multimodal art and film project, led by artist and
filmmaker Benjamin Wigley, that celebrates humanity's ingrained relationship with the woods.
The project's capacious branches envelope an ambitious range of art forms that include: a long-form
avant-garde documentary film, outdoor expanded cinema live event, kinetoscope hand-crank celluloid
film projection sculptures, and an exhibition of handmade celluloid film prints, paintings, and projections.
Benjamin Wigley has been working with a team of artists on this pioneering project at Dudmaston’s
This project was originally conceived to mark the 40th Anniversary since the property
came under the care of the National Trust, but the pandemic caused delays and during that time has
evolved into an inspiring collection of works that explore ideas around the multitude of ways people can
immerse themselves in an idea or story.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
