2016 was another extremely successful year for the Trust. We worked with more than 10,000 people, which is a record number for us, and we welcomed an increasingly diverse range of groups from schools, colleges, universities, specialist and community groups to the sculpture park. The quality of our programme was highlighted when our Head of Education, Emma Kerr, won The Marsh Award for Excellence in Gallery Education 2016. View our programme of past events for 2016 here.
