We are delighted to welcome you to our seventh Sculpture at Doddington exhibition. We have more than 300 inspiring works of art by 60 national and international sculptors set throughout our walled and wild gardens.

We’ve added numbered arrows through the gardens to showcase the breadth of work on display and help you make the most of your visit. Don’t forget to visit the Stable Yard where you will find a large indoor Sculpture Gallery.

Every sculpture is for sale and a purchase is not only the acquisition of special work but also supports the artists and contributes to the conservation and protection of Doddington Hall and Gardens.

New for 2024, our Kitchen Garden hosts our first Doddington Young Sculptor Award, curated by Doddington Hall’s creative lead, Angus Forbes. This provides an excellent opportunity to view the work of the talented budding sculptors together with works of art from some of the finest contemporary sculptors.

We thank David Waghorne and Kate McGovern from Sculpture Events for once again curating the exhibition and refining the quality and variety of the work. We also thank our sponsors for their generous support.

We very much hope you enjoy your visit.
