The Secret Garden
The Secret Garden is unique in Brighton & Hove, the only garden of its type in the city, and the only place where major outdoor works of sculpture can be shown in a secure setting. Its beautiful planting scheme is the perfect backdrop for artworks and the garden itself is an oasis of calm in which to enjoy them.
In Nature: A celebration in sculpture
Saturday 2 May - Sunday 31 May 2020
Weekends and bank holidays, 11am - 5pm
The Secret Garden hosts temporary exhibitions by nationally and internationally exhibited artists. ‘In Nature’, the exhibition for May 2020, takes the theme of trees and seed forms. It will feature major sculptures including the magnificent large-scale Richmond Oak, and accompanying works, by Kenneth Armitage; Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva’s gilded elm; two striking red tree forms by Julian Wild; and a selection of Wendy Taylor’s acclaimed seed series: Sycamore, Fir Cones, Poppy Seed, Acorn and Cob Nut. The exhibition will include new works ideally suited to this setting.
Visitors of all ages are welcome. Entry is free and the garden is fully accessible for wheelchairs, enabling a wide range of people to enjoy high quality sculpture in a relaxing atmosphere, with events for local schools, students and older people.
During public openings there is a very popular café, by TABLE Brighton, offering the best homemade Sussex fare.
The Secret Garden is run by Antony Dale Trust, a registered UK charity, governed by a small board of dedicated trustees.
