Chiswick House and Gardens will be re-opening to the public in April 2021 with a fresh new visitor experience in the house and gardens. As part of this refresh, we are producing a new audio guide for visitors to the house and a new short film to introduce visitors to the house and gardens, past and present.
We are looking for local people with fond memories of spending time at Chiswick – in the house or the gardens. Did you get married here, play cricket, take part in a special event or hang out with your friends after school in the gardens? We’d love to hear your stories, some of which may be shared with visitors on the audio guide, in the film and on the website.
Once we have a shortlist of stories, Iona will be in touch to arrange a time to record you talking about your experience. This may be an audio-only interview with our producer or a filmed interview with our filmmaker. Or we may simply share your memory as a written quote on the website or in our promotional material. Please let us know in your reply if you are happy to be filmed and/or recorded.
Please email the Project Curator, Iona Keen, with details of your memory of Chiswick House and Gardens: firstname.lastname@example.org
