The atmospheric Barn Theatre setting complements the photos captured as the winning images for the Kent Wildlife Trust Photography Competition 2016.

They cover categories including flora, fauna, junior, landscape, coastline and people and working for wildlife.

The trust works to protect the diversity of the county's wildlife, and increase awareness of the ongoing threat to its welfare. It awarded Smallhythe Place the Silver Gilt Award in 2016, recognising its projects to improve the habitats for its animal residents.

Visitors to the exhibition can also see how Smallhythe Place is conserving and protecting its wildlife in the garden with projects from an insect hotel to bird baths and the maintenance of the pond which is filled with great crested newts.
