In 2016-2017,  I worked closely with the National Trust as they renovate The Vyne, a manor house most closely associated with Henry VIII's Lord Chamberlain, Sir William Sandys.

The £5.4 million renovation of the roof spurred the Trust to transform The Vyne into a stunning new historical exhibit, including a remarkable soundscape in the Tudor chapel that features a Lady Mass by Nicholas Ludford. I worked alongside the Trust throughout the project, from conception through its launch.

I was awarded the 2017 Vice-Chancellor's Public Engagement with Research Award from the University of Oxford for this project, and the findings have also been published in Curator: the Museum Journal.

To hear more about the project, you can listen to my interviews with BBC Radio 3 or Radio 4.
