Urchfont Manor is a Grade 2* 17th century manor house. Its garden is currently being redesigned by award winning team del Buono Gazerwitz. It provides a stunning backdrop to an exhibition featuring over 100 pieces of contemporary sculpture.  The mix of figurative and abstract work provides the final touch to the garden, parts of which now includes alcoves, viewpoints, a maze and reflecting pool, all wonderful settings for an artist’s work. A café and popup shop are also on site.

This major exhibition takes contemporary sculpture out of the gallery and into its natural setting and is undertaken in partnership with local Corsham based charity Pound Arts www.poundarts.org.uk

The Friends of the Garden is a voluntary organisation with the objective of promoting contemporary sculpture to a wider public by organising exhibitions in private gardens in Wiltshire. We also support sculptors through a biennial bursary programme.
