Art in the Garden - 2021

Following the triumph of last year's Lockdown Virtual Art in the Garden Festival we are thrilled to once again invite you to join with us in the real world to celebrate the talents of various selected local outdoor artists.

As usual, you will be delighted to discover the various strategically-placed artworks as you stroll around our gardens and plants. Running throughout July and August. Lesley has arranged for local artists to install original pieces of their outdoor art in our themed display gardens. This year pieces include work in wood, metal, ceramic, stained glass, mosaics & slate.

You will find a couple of exciting new exhibitors to the event this year and we welcome many return exhibitors with some absolutely gorgeous new pieces for everyone to enjoy.

Do make a note in your diaries to come and explore our gardens in July and August and delight in discovering the art arranged in them.

And don't forget to take part in The People’s Vote for your favourite piece.

Hope to see you soon!
