National Trust: The London ProjectDispelling the thought that the National Trust is a rural-based charity for old people, The London Project will remind visitors that the 117-year-old company actually originated in the capital and is still relevant and exciting today. This radical reworking will engage a younger audience with London's built heritage, history and outdoor spaces through a number of one-off events that span arts, culture and the urban green environment. The project kicks off with a partnership with Chelsea Fringe, the annual alternative garden festival, and will plant 35 mature fruit trees to create Octavia's Orchard at the Southbank Centre, which will form part of the Festival of Neighbourhood. This partnership will also involve a night time Fox Watch walk in central London, a chance to track the capital's nocturnal neighbours; an open performance on twitter, inviting writers to collaboratively create a chorus of tweets in the early hours of the morning; and Wild about London, a 24 hour event at Osterley Park welcomes specialists to share their knowledge on ancient trees, birds, bats and insects. This will be followed by two nights of immersive film parties with Amy Grimehouse at Sutton House in Hackney and The Art of Dining's latest pop up, which will take place across three London National Trust venues and combine art, theatre and fine dining. Further highlights include a festival of London beers and micro-breweries at Morden Hall Park, a croquet boules and garden games weekend with 200-year old gamesmaker Jaques, and party masters The Last Tuesday Society hosting two events at Carlyle's House.

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
