The Hogarth's Mulberry Garden Project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the London Borough of Hounslow has seen the garden redesigned and added a new learning space, the Weston Studio to the site. Following this major redevelopment, Hogarth's House is launching a new programme with a special exhibition, events and activities this Summer.
