Affordable Garden Art Exhibition Showborough House Thursday 27th April to Sunday 11th June 2017

The 2017 Affordable Garden Art Exhibition will be open as follows:

on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays,

Opening hours 10:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m..

Group visits can be arranged at other times.

There is no entry charge but we do welcome donations.

There will be sculptures by about 70 sculptors. All sculptures will be for sale and priced at under £4000, most being under £1000 and some under £100. Exhibitors only contribute minimal commission to cover the direct costs of the exhibition so prices are competitive and artists benefit. Most sculptors come from Gloucestershire and surrounding counties but a few from much further away. The exhibition is designed to appeal to sculptors at the beginning of their careers, including students, although some well-established sculptors who price their work competitively do come.

There will be an indoor exhibition of work by local artists

For a small charge tea, coffee and cold drinks are available, as well as biscuits and sometimes cake. There are many places for lunch within a few miles.

There are some gravel paths and steps so most but not all of the garden and exhibits are accessible by wheelchair. There are some potential hazards for small children, such as steps and ponds, so they should be supervised. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome and there are parking places in the shade. Parking is in the adjacent field or on the common, on grass.

Please check our How To Find Us page rather than relying on satellite navigation, which usually doesn’t work here.

There will be a companion exhibition at The Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury. This will include works by some of the sculptors who are exhibiting in the garden. The sculptures will be displayed on the walls of the Cafe Bar which is open during Box Office hours every day during the exhibition. All work will be for sale at the Box Office and the minimal commission will support the work of The Roses, which is Tewkesbury's community arts charity.

If you would like a reminder just before we open just send an e-mail to roache@onetel.com and I will put you on our e-mailing list.

Affordable Garden Art Exhibition 2015

Welcome. We hope you enjoy the garden and the sculptures. The sculptures have been made by sculptors of all levels of experience, from beginners and students to well-established artists with international reputations. Most, but not all, are from Gloucestershire and surrounding counties. If you have any questions, Andrew or one of the sculptors will be here at all times.

Pleas vote for your favourite sculpture in the tub on the verandah.

Please do not picnic in the garden. You are welcome to use the car parking field.

Dogs on leads are welcome, unless they annoy the cat.

Normal garden hazards apply. There are steps, ponds, trip hazards, prickly plants and, of course, heavy and fragile sculptures.

If you enjoy your visit please make a donation in one of the boxes. We are supporting the Royal British Legion again this year but, in response to requests from visitors last year, we also have a box in aid of this garden, to help us keep the exhibition and open garden going in future years.

Affordable Garden Art Exhibition Showborough House Thursday 1st May to Sunday 15th June 2014

There will be sculptures by over 60 sculptors. All sculptures will be for sale and priced at under £3000, most being under £1000 and some under £100. Exhibitors only contribute minimal commission to cover the direct costs of the exhibition so prices are competitive and artists benefit. Most sculptors come from Gloucestershire and surrounding counties but a few from much further away. The exhibition is designed to appeal to sculptors at the beginning of their careers, including students, although some well-established sculptors who price their work competitively do come.

Showborough House holds the Affordable Garden Art Competition and Exhibition in the Spring. A wide variety of good but affordable sculpture, mostly by local or emerging sculptors, can be seen in the natural setting of the one and a half acre garden, which has been renovated over the last five years. There are works in different sizes, styles and media, including wood, metal, stone, glass, ceramic and resin. Showborough is an informal venue, where visitors are encouraged to enjoy the exhibits and the garden at their own pace, and perhaps to sit and relax with a cup of tea or coffee.

Exhibits are for sale and because Showborough House is a non-profit venture any purchases provide maximum support to the artists.

It features works by over sixty sculptors in stone, metal, ceramic, glass and other materials, all displayed in the attractive garden. There is an indoor exhibition of work by invited local artists and refreshments are available.

The exhibition is open Thursday to Sunday and on Bank Holiday Mondays, from 10:30am until 4:00pm.

HOW TO FIND US

Showborough House is conveniently situated close to the A38, M5 and M50 and is easy to find with a little guidance. Some satellite navigation systems leave people on the M5, part of which has the same postcode, so the final mile from Twyning is best followed the old-fashioned way, by map or the instructions below.

We are one mile from the centre of the village of Twyning. From the village War Memorial take the road signposted to Hillend, Strensham and Pershore. (There is a temporary sign to Showborough during the exhibition.) After ½ mile turn right, signposted Showborough and Downfield. At the bottom of the hill turn left, signposted Showborough. Showborough House is the first property on the right.

Twyning is signposted off the A38 three miles north of Tewkesbury (towards Worcester) in the hamlet of Shuthonger, almost opposite the Hilton hotel.

Twyning is also signposted off the slip-road of the west-bound M50 junction 1 (for Malvern), one mile from junction 8 of the M5. If east-bound on the M50 leave at junction 1 (Tewkesbury), go under the motorway, then 50 yards up the M50 West slipway before turning right for Twyning.

Visitors from Pershore may approach from Defford on the Pershore to Upton-upon-Severn road. Twyning is signposted just after Defford by the farm shop. Go through Strensham. Showborough is signposted to the left on the outskirts of Twyning.

Parking at Showborough House is indicated on the common. People with mobility problems may find it easier to avoid the gravel drive and enter the garden from the field if they have no objection to driving on grass. They should arrange for the field gate to be open before they arrive.

Some approximate journey times are: Tewkesbury or Pershore 10 minutes, Malvern and Ledbury 20 minutes, Cheltenham, Worcester or Evesham 25 minutes, Cirencester or Stow-on-the-Wold 40 minutes, Moreton-in-Marsh 45 minutes.

The closest places for lunch are the Village Inn or the Fleet Inn in Twyning (I mile), various pubs and cafes in Tewkesbury, Pershore or Upton (5-6 miles), or pubs in villages such as Ripple or Bredon. The National Trust's Croome Park (8 miles) has a cafeteria in the renovated World War II military hospital.
