The 2020 Sculpture Trail at Raveningham features 48 selected artists and makers across 3 acres of grounds who are responding to the theme of Creative Odyssey. This could be about physical, emotional or artistic journeys and artists have developed ideas, artwork, sculpture, site specific works, stories, magic and more for the meadows, pond, gardens, and woodland at Raveningham. By letting our imaginations and aspirations soar we hope to create a sculpture exhibition that inspires visitors and creates the opportunity for artists to experiment and create. The Sculpture Trail team is committed to encouraging public interaction with contemporary art in a rural setting as well as creating space and opportunity for artists to show and sell their work to a diverse audience.
The trail is open 1st – 30th August 2020. To ensure that everyone has enough space to socially distance and have an enjoyable visit we are booking arrival time slots online. Book your arrival time below for £6, this covers one adult entry fee and then pay for the other adults in your group via contactless payment at the box office when you arrive. Under 18s are free.
