Open call for artists at Leith Hill Place

This open call in now closed. Please check back in early 2020 for details of our next open call.

Starting a new tradition

Over the past few years the team at Leith Hill Place have been experimenting by using various rooms in the house for displays of art. This has ranged from large scale installations exploring colour and light, to more traditional gallery-style displays. 

Setting the trend

Almost unique for the National Trust, Leith Hill Place offers a blank canvas to work with because  the house had hardly any collections donated with the gift of the estate. Having been tenanted for most of the last 60 years, the house is in need of restoration. Whilst funding is being sought for this work, the house is in a state of limbo with new uses for the empty spaces being trialled. In 2018 the art theme led to a programme of seven different installations and exhibitions. in 2019 the theme is 'outdoors and wellbeing', encouraging visitors to explore more of the 400 acre estate which was gifted with the house.
