What’s On – Art & Sculpture Trail

Enjoy work by Simon Meiklejohn, Paul Thomas, Peter King, Simon Probyn, Jon Williams, Sarah Monk and more throughout the gardens and grounds.

The sculptors work with myriad forms of natural mediums: stone, wood, metal and willow. Their pieces explore the power, beauty and fragility of the natural world, exhibited together as a feast of shape, form, colour and movement, and a chance for thought and reflection. 

Enjoy the unusual experience of a diverse, mixed trail that is inclusive to many styles and curated by the sculptors themselves, allowing for a celebration of nature and humanity, personal responses to educational themes, and the opportunity to share Hellens Garden Festival values and aims in a creative, expressive way.  We love that it encourages visitors to explore beyond the main areas of the Hellens garden and takes them out into nature. 

The sculpture trail will unfold within hidden spaces, woodland nooks, leafy spinneys, and secret moss covered pathways… a magical experience for all who visit.
