Final flourish for Richmond garden festival
As the borough’s first gardens festival comes to a close people are invited to attend one final exhibition.
Coordinated by Arts Richmond, more than 40 local artists will examine the borough’s Arcadian landscapes, views and vistas for the exhibition called Arcadia ReVisited.
The works will be on display for just one weekend, from October 25 to 27, in the Octagon Room at Orleans House Gallery.
Since May, more than 100 events and activities have been held for the gardens festival.
These included walks around Ham House and Gardens, Twickenham riverside, Marble Hill House and Gardens, events at the Wetland’s Centre, a Big Picnic at Hampton Court Palace and music and entertainment at Garricks’ Temple.
Councillor Gareth Evans, cabinet member for communities, business and culture, said: “Thousands of people have enjoyed our beautiful gardens over the summer, and now we have been announced as the most flowered place in the country, what more fitting that an exhibition celebrating our open spaces, by local artists in the area.”
