Join Paul Boniface for a talk about the Role & History of the National Trust

About this event

Please note this is a repeat talk. If you attended the talk in January you need not attend again.

Join u3a members for a talk about the role and history of the organisation. Paul Boniface who worked for the National Trust for more than 21 years, will chart the history of the organisation from the end of the 19th century explaining the charity's mission and how it has responded to changing conservation challenges of the past 125 years.


Paul Boniface worked with the National Trust for over 21 years before he retired earlier this year. For eleven years he was the Director of People & Legal Services after which he became The Secretary. As part of the Trust’s management team Paul played a key role in the modernisation of the Trust in the early 00s. New strategies and plans followed as the Trust responded to changing conservation challenges.

In 2020 Paul was part of the team tasked with responding to the far-reaching impacts of coronavirus at the Trust.

Paul lectures on conservation and the National Trust both in the UK and overseas. Paul says, ‘It was a privilege to spend most of my career working for a charity with as noble a cause as the National Trust’s and surrounded by such passionate and expert colleagues’.

This talk is for u3a members only
