Doddington Hall’s sculpture trail returns this month

Even COVID-19 couldn’t stop this popular festival

Doddington Hall’s annual sculpture festival is set to begin this month, overcoming fears of cancellation due to COVID-19.

The exhibition will take place at the hall’s gardens and stable yard between Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, September 6.

There will be daily galleries of works by 68 sculptors from all over the world.

Almost all of the pieces on display will be on sale, in an aid to help fund the careers of the sculptors chosen for the exhibition.

Various social distancing measures have had to be put in place to allow for the festival to go ahead.

Consistent 2m distances will have to be kept, there will be more regular cleaning at the hall and hand sanitiser will be made available to all visitors upon entry.

Other rules include no large bags or dogs, but photography is welcomed.

Tickets will cost £7.50 for adults, £3.50 for children, or £19 whole families.
