Cocktails: 6:30 pm
Dinner & Program: 7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Our 18th Timeless Design Dinner featured a program sponsored by Rizzoli and timed with its publication of The Country House: Past, Present, Future – an exciting new book featuring beautiful photography of many National Trust properties.

The program welcomed the book’s coeditors Sir David Cannadine and Jeremy Musson and special guests Robert Sackville-West, 7th Baron Sackville, in conversation with BBC World News America anchor and correspondent, Laura Trevelyan.

American designer Sarah Magness lent her talents to our dinner tables with a décor that evoked the spirit of Royal Oak and the National Trust.
