Back in the summer a call-out was made by Strawberry Hill House and Garden for people to be involved in a lockdown letters project called Write to Horace.
On the website it explains that “The ‘Write to Horace’ campaign was designed to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the restoration of Strawberry Hill House and to engage with the local community during lockdown, culminating in the ‘Lockdown Letters to Horace: An Art Installation’ and a ‘Digital Library of Letters’ collated from all our letter writers.”
I hadn’t expected my letter to be chosen for this lovely project when I wrote because it was really to engage the local community of Strawberry Hill House and Garden but as I’d happened across it I thought it would be quite nice to “Write to Horace” and especially to send him a wax-sealed letter from the Letter Writing Shed.
You can imagine my delight when my letter was chosen to be used in the art installation being created at Strawberry Hill House and when a snippet of me reading out my letter was used in the promotional video alongside other contributors and introduced by Richard E. Grant.
