CLA Southwest: Dorset AGM & Visit to St Giles House

We are extremely fortunate to be able to hold the Dorset 2024 AGM at St Giles House by kind permission of Lord Shaftesbury. The AGM is generously supported by our partners tbc.

St Giles House has a long and rich history. It has been at the heart of politics, philosophy, and social reform for generations. Built in 1651, the Grade I listed house stands in a vast park through which the River Allen flows, feeding a seven-acre lake as it winds it’s way towards the small parish village of Wimborne St Giles. In recent times an award-winning restoration has seen St Giles House brought back to life and become a family home once again. In 2010 The Earl & Countess of Shaftesbury embarked on a project to bring the house back to it’s original charm. What started as a simple plan to move the family back into the house developed into a 12 year restoration project that is still ongoing. Now the house is home to events, workshops and conferences and celebrates life through music and art.
