The Australian composer, Peggy Glanville-Hicks (1912 - 1990) gave her house to the nation as a residence for Australian and visiting composers. She lived in the house from 1976 to 1990. The House was originally restored by the Trust with assistance from Arts NSW, the Australia Council for the Arts and sponsors and was opened by The Hon. Peter Collins, QC, MP, NSW Minister for the Arts, on 11 October 1993. You can play an important part in helping continue Peggys' dream for an artist's residency program by becoming a supporter of The House. The residency is Australia's only composer residency program. The royalties from Peggy's compositions go towards the maintenance of The House, unfortunately this is not enough to cover the cost of the much need restoration. We need your support!
