Leonardslee gardens is a magnificent Grade 1 listed garden that was nearly lost forever and has been the subject of the largest garden restoration in England. After nearly five years of work these spectacular and ancient gardens are now open for the public to enjoy once again.

Building on the success of our inaugural exhibition last year, we are delighted to offer you another opportunity to exhibit at this glorious venue.
There are shady glens and hillside placements with the mature valley gardens as a most complimentary backdrop.
So that even more members of the public can enjoy our trail this year the route is mainly at the crest of the valley, near the main house; which affords the flattest and most accessible route available. Our sales desk will be closer to the cafe this year, great for handing out our sculpture trail guides.
The trail will take visitors past the wallabies, often seen hopping amongst the rhododendrons and even tempt them with the chance to have a cream tea whilst relaxing in their extensive vineyard. (This is a new event for this year which sounds fantastic, made even better by our sculptures).
There’s a little for everyone – as if the sculptures weren’t enough!
Let us know if you need assistance setting up so we can arrange additional help.
Most pieces will be afforded a level placement but please be aware that some will be on sloping ground. Leonardslee are happy for us to peg/stake into the ground, though the garden staff may have a little input in specific areas.
Please let us know if you have any specific requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
We need your sculptures to create an inspiring trail. Please submit up to 5 outdoor suitable sculptures.
Looking forward to seeing all the works created during lockdown in the Spring,
On behalf of the SSS Leonardslee team. Abby Martin (Exhibition Manager)
