Benjamin’s art instillation ‘A Lost Paradise?’ is an art project at the Staffordshire National Trust property, which aims to provide insight into the shifting nature of Shugborough’s outstanding parkland. Using hand-crafted film, Ben reveals the layers and lost history of this unique and remarkable landscape, which are viewable through special hand-crank-powered kinetoscopes across the parkland.

As part of the relaunch of ‘A Lost Paradise?’, artist Benjamin Wigley is hosting a talk that will give you the chance to have a behind the scenes look at this project. Event tickets cost £5 and normal admissions to Shugborough apply. Please check Shugborough’s website to book onto events. Shugborough Estate is open Monday –Sunday 9.00am-6.00pm, and is closed on Christmas day. Normal admissions apply to the site.
