As a part of the celebrations to mark the return of the 1936 ‘Young Henry’ painting depicting Henry Paget, the 7th Marquess of Anglesey, there will be a special experience this summer to bring 14-year-old Henry to life through audio.

Interested applicants aged between 11 and 16 years old will be whittled down to a shortlist before the successful actor is chosen by the Marquess’ granddaughter and professional actress, Lady Clara Paget >

Could you or someone you know be the voice of young Henry Paget at Plas Newydd? We're on the lookout for a budding young actor to volunteer for the role.
