Royal Oak Lectures & Tours for SPRING 2018

Welcome to the online home of The Royal Oak Foundation's SPRING 2018 Programs.

Royal Oak Programs are a vital part of the foundation's ongoing educational mission in the United States. Since the the series began, Royal Oak has planned and presented over 1000 lectures by over 220 speakers in 66 different cities across the United States. Our SPRING 2018 programs are made possible by The Drue Heinz Trust and additional support from the Marian Meaker Apteckar Foundation and an Anonymous Donor.

Royal Oak Programs have been a significant benefit of membership for over 35 years. They foster a greater awareness of topics including National Trust properties and collections; British history; architecture and design; decorative and fine arts; preservation and conservation; landscape and garden history.
