Hundreds of art sculptures arrive at Doddington Hall

This story is over

Some 400 pieces of sculpture from across the globe have come together at Doddington Hall for an artistic exhibition from Saturday, August 2.

The exhibition is open every day from 11am until 4pm from Saturday August 2 to Sunday September 7.

The event was first held in 2012, attracting 250 pieces and thousands of visitors. It’s back for a one-off display as one of the largest in the UK.

Organisers say no piece has been exhibited at the hall before, and visitors will be able to enjoy a wide range of work and styles from classic to modern, wood, marble, stone, water, bronze, ceramics, glass and rubber.

The pieces will be sited in the seven-acre walled and wild gardens surrounding the hall, and all work will be for sale.

There will be two themed trails to follow, including the work of Kathy Dalwood, which will be displayed in the Great Hall.

There will also be a mechanical, working corkscrew cast in bronze (described as the world’s largest) and a ten metre paper and hologram sculpture by Davy & Kristin McGuire which will come to Lincolnshire after its current tour of Japan.

Visitors will be able to see the full exhibition (including the table display in the Great Hall) for the price of normal garden entry (£6 per adult, 14 and under £3, family ticket of two adults and four children £15).
