Easter Sculpture festival – CANCELLED

Friday 10 April 2020 at 10:00 am to Monday 13 April 2020 at 5:00 pm

The Botanic Garden has taken the decision to cancel this event; taking into consideration the age of our volunteers and the numbers of people who visit the festival, we have decided that a cancellation is the only responsible course of action. 

Carboniferous limestone giants striding through a prehistoric forest, the delicate sounds of ceramic Zen bells chiming on trees, mosaic foxes and the mesmerising sight of the potter’s wheel are all features of this year’s Sculpture Festival.

The Botanic Garden provides a unique setting with its own backdrop of sculptural elements including soaring bamboos, prehistoric tree ferns, giant leaves and exotic treasures in the glasshouses.

During the event visitors can view and buy sculpture, enjoy demonstrations of willow weaving, pottery and woodworking and take a tour of the garden which will be full of spring flowers. Refreshments will be available. Plant sales.

Refreshments will be provided by the wonderful Chandos Deli in the Holmes.

Entry charge £9.00. Advance tickets available via the online shop at a discounted rate of £8.00. Please click here to purchase.
Free entry to children aged 18 and under, students, Friends of the Botanic Garden and University of Bristol staff.
