Detailed Business Planning for the Trust as part of an NLHF-funded Resilient Heritage programme. Our work sought to identify a sustainable route forward for the Trust that respected its charitable objectives.

The Trust recently delivered the Turner and the Thames: Five Paintings exhibition, the first time the artist's oil paintings had been displayed at his former residence.

Built in 1813 to the designs of the artist J.M.W. Turner, the artist lived here until 1826. Now Grade II* listed, it opened as a visitor attraction in 2017.

Fourth Street was commissioned by the Turners House Trust to provide business planning services in relation to the Trust’s Project Pathway to sustainability. Part of an NLHF-funded Resilient Heritage programme, our work included detailed financial analysis and benchmarking against competitors and comparators, stakeholder consultations and detailed market analysis drawing key lessons from other artists houses around the UK.
