Last week I attended a private evening viewing of the Birtley House Sculpture Garden exhibition courtesy of my business’s corporate charity, Surrey Wildlife Trust.
This is Birtley House’s second sculpture exhibition following the huge success of last year’s inaugural event which attracted around 2,000 visitors.
I viewed over 170 pieces displayed around the house and gardens ranging from the small and abstract to life-sized and easily recognisable with a distinct animal theme throughout.
Birtley House is a charming residential home nestled within 48 acres of stunning Surrey Hills parkland, so it provides the perfect setting and backdrop for the unusual and eclectic exhibits and despite the rather bracing weather (it is May isn’t it?) made for a delightful evening walk with a difference.
The exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm until the end of May with free entrance and free parking and all sculpture items for sale. For further information visit www.birtleyhouse.co.uk
If you haven’t already been I would thoroughly recommend it; for the views of the Surrey Hills as much as the sculptures themselves.
