It’s back!  The Easter Sculpture Festival returns for the first time since 2019. The ephemeral sounds of melodious Zen bells chiming on trees, enchanting pond lily ceramics and the mesmerising sight of the potter’s wheel are all features of this year’s Festival.

New sculptors include Simon Probyn, Sonya Wilkins and Geoff Hannis. Visitors will be able to 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. Chandos Deli will be serving their delicious refreshments, and there will be opportunities to buy plants.

We’re looking forward to the event very much and hope to see you there!
