Through studying the collaboration between philanthropist Thomas Coram, artist William Hogarth and composer George Frideric Handel at the Foundling Hospital, we will experience a slice right through mid-eighteenth century London society and culture. Not only effectively Britain’s first children's charity, it was also its first public art gallery, paving the way for the rapid expansion of exhibition spaces which followed.

As a film-maker, I travel the world but few places offer such repose, intellectual stimulation and comfort. I can't wait to come back. My hat is most certainly off to all the hard-working team at Dillington. Their commitment to high quality service and programme innovation is truly remarkable. I thoroughly recommend it! Phil Grabsky
