Strategic support and practical advice with audience development planning.

The Laurence Sterne Trust was established as a registered charity in 1967 in order to promote the writings of Laurence Sterne, the 18th century novelist and vicar of Coxwold. Shandy Hall is where he lived and wrote The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman and A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy.

The Trust promotes Sterne’s work and international reputation through exhibitions, events and public access to the property and its collection.

My work involved a number of audience development mentoring sessions with the team through a commission from Museums Development Yorkshire.
