Why are you here? explored how and why houses like Blickling were left to the National Trust and invited visitors to think about the people who owned the houses not so long ago when they were handed over the national heritage organisation.

Why are you Here? at National Trust Blickling Estate, 2015. Photography: Kenny Gray. Courtesy of National Trust Blickling Estate2015 marked the 75th anniversary of the untimely death of Philip Kerr, the 11th Marquis of Lothian and his bequest of Blickling to the National Trust. November Club has weaved his story through the house, opening up new rooms in the process, so visitors encounter parts of the house he used privately and for entertaining.  Visitors discover that Lord Lothian was much more than just one of the Trust’s donors. In fact, his impact on our lives was quite profound…

November Club developed a playful collection of sounds, objects and smells evoke stories of the most recent resident of Blickling Hall.
