National Trust Bench Mate art project sets up ‘talking’ benches

As part of a new art project by heritage charity the National Trust, named Bench Mate, eight ‘talking’ benches have been created and situated on different National Trust properties. The benches feature audio systems which play five-minute monologues voiced by celebrities, as well engravings of their signatures. The benches aim to enhance visitors’ experiences of the locations in which they are situated.
