Rodborough Hidden Gardens and Sculpture

Rodborough, Stroud, Gloucestershire
Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2017
11.00pm to 5.00pm

Rodborough Hidden Gardens and SculptureRodborough's third Hidden Gardens and Sculpture trail promises to be a visual extravaganza, and is an exciting addition to Stroud''s calendar of key cultural events.

Over a weekend, resident gardeners will be throwing open their gates to welcome garden enthusiasts and art lovers. These beautiful, hidden gardens in and around Church Place, Rodborough, range from smaller more intimate cottage style to more substantial landscaped gardens reflecting the individual characters of the owners. These include the fascinating 'secret garden' surrounding Rodborough Court.

The event showcases fifteen sculptors, many of whom will be there to talk about their work. We are delighted to welcome back Helen Lomberg, Amanda Moriarty, and Marion Mitchell, among others and look forward to exhibiting the work of new contributors Adrian Bates, Dan Rawlings, and Sebastien David.

New for 2017 an exhibition of sculpture created by local primary school children, free daily drop-in sculpture workshops for children, book signings by local author Katie Fforde and talks by Stroud Valleys Project on wildlife habitats for gardens.

There will be a range of stalls in Church Place selling local produce and plants with delicious refreshments served in The Old Endowed School. Sorry, but we have limited access for dogs.

Proceeds to The Old Endowed School and Stroud Valleys Project.
