How green is your… historic estate?

 A guided tour around Shugborough Historic estate

is the basis of our next Green Museums Knowledge Cafe on 4th june.

Sign up now Eventbrite - Green Museums Knowledge Cafe #4


Shugborough are enthusiastic members of our Reducing Bills group and on the tour, as well as water and lighting shugborough logo-lg changes we will see their plans for a solar panel array in the walled garden and their hydroelectric plans for the farm. The site is jointly by Staffordshire County Council in association with the National Trust. We will hear how – and why – both are supporting change and how a Grade1 landscape can offer challenges…

The afternoon will be led by our project co-ordinator Zoe Hanks, grassrootsideas  who will introduce the online toolkit she has devised to help us all gather and galvanise an effective Green Champion Team on our own sites. With Zoe’s mentoring support we are kickstarting the toolkit on a number of sites over the next few months  – will you be one of them?

Everyone is welcome to this event, come and see Shugborough, how it is supporting sustainability and share your stories of how to get your staff and visitors behind your green changes
