Katherine Carter is the Project Curator and Collections Manager at Chartwell, the former home of Sir Winston Churchill in which he resided for over forty years.  The house remains much as it did when he lived there. Pictures, books and personal mementos evoke the career and wide-ranging interests of the statesman, writer, painter and family man, while the hillside gardens reflect Churchill’s love of the landscape and nature. They include the lakes he created, Lady Churchill’s Rose Garden, and the playhouse built especially for his youngest daughter. Katherine will be discussing her role at Chartwell, the history of the house and why the stories housed within its walls are so important and remain so relevant for all of us in the 21st-century and beyond.
