Over two hundred works by leading UK and international artists will be shown around Asthall Manor’s acclaimed gardens in their beautiful Windrush valley setting. The Mad Hatter bookshop will once again take up residence in the summer house, and a full schedule of inspiring events, including garden talks, theatre, carving and painting workshops, can be found on the on form website - www onformsculpture.co.uk.
Highlights will include dusk birdsong walks through the gardens with composer and founder of www.planetbirdsong.org, Peter Cowdrey. Scary Little Girls will return with their innovative site-specific performances, Garden writer Mary Keen will be giving a talk and signing her new book, plus stone carving and painting workshops for adults and children.
Chef, Fiona Cullinane, whom AA Gill has called “one of the very best British, rural cooks” and her team, look forward to welcoming guests to the Potting Shed Café, set in the idyllic walled garden of Asthall Manor. Fiona will transform the 18th Century stone potting shed in to a charming eating area. A pretty outdoor area will also be created, a perfect place to enjoy views of the Windrush Valley and watch the bees at work in the wild flower meadow.
