On form sculpture in stone

The UK’s most seductive exhibition of sculpture in stone returns to Asthall Manor

8 June - 6 July 2014

We are privileged to join forces with Rosie Pearson, the owner of Asthall Manor in neighbouring Swinbrook for their 2014 Biennial "on form" sculpture exhibition. With 30 artists showcasing nearly 200 sculpures in Asthall Manor’s exquisite gardens, its elegant ballroom, and in St Nicholas Church next door.

Every season in the Cotswolds has its rewards; the summer months are awash with colour and the undulating walk from Old Minster to Asthall Manor along the River Windrush, inspiring and uplifting. Once home to the legendary Mitford sisters, Asthall Manor is said to be the setting for Nancy Mitford's fictional Alconleigh in The Pursuit of Love.

The exquisite garden at Asthall Manor is listed as a Grade II Historic Garden and created for the current owners by Julian and Isobel Bannerman (best known for their work for Prince Charles at Highgrove House).

Throughout its run, on form will host a full programme of events to deepen the experience, from gardening talks and tours, workshops by sculptors and experts and a bookshop, in association with Burford based Mad Hatter Bookshop.

NB - on form runs from 8 June - 6 July 2014

Opening hours: Wednesday to Sunday 12 noon to 6pm

Thyme Café in the Potting Shed serves selections from the English traditional kitchen garden

Closed Mondays and Tuesdays

All the sculpture is for sale

Please ask us for more information on specific details of the programme at Asthall.
