They have also written, produced and directed a number of events with an historical theme notably A Garland For Mavis and Royal Connections (both at Ham House, Surrey) and An Arcadian Miscellany which was commissioned by the Thames Landscape Strategy. In 2014 they were asked to revise and update the Miscellany.
