Welcome to the University of Leicester Botanic Garden: a world of plants
International Sculpture Show on hold for 2015
The University of Leicester is reviewing its public engagement activities and as a result will not be hosting the International Sculpture Show in 2015. The University is aware that the sculpture show has become a regular feature in the arts calendar and appreciates that this will be a disappointment to many.
The University is committed to providing a wealth of public engagement activities, and the new gallery extension in the Attenborough Arts Centre (formerly Embrace Arts) is an exciting example that will provide one of the largest spaces dedicated to contemporary art contemporary art in the East Midlands. The Gallery will be opening with its first public show in the autumn this year.
The University has a number of permanent sculptures available for viewing within the Botanic Garden and across its main campus, all of which can be enjoyed by the public. (Map showing location of sculptures is available here).
The Garden remains open throughout the year (Christmas to New Year period excepted), seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm, and we encourage the public to continue to make use of this facility as well as the summer cafe in the Garden (DETAILS IN BOX ON RIGHT).Future events will be advertised on the University and the Botanic Garden websites
