Now in its tenth year, this showcase of work by UK and international sculptors is held in the idyllic setting of the University’s historic Botanic Garden in Oadby. Curated once again by sculptor and honorary graduate John Sydney Carter, this year’s title is A Decade of Sculpture in the Garden so don’t be surprised if there is a reflective air to the proceedings.

Full details are still to be confirmed, but among the highlights of the exhibition you can expect to see two welded stainless steel sculptures by the internationally acclaimed sculptor Lynn Chadwick, ‘Lion I’ (1990) and ‘Sitting Couple on Bench’ (1990), both loaned by Pangolin’s Gallery.

For those who want to start planning their visits, the exhibition runs from Sunday 26 June until Sunday 30 October 2011. The Botanic Garden’s opening times are 10.00am-4.00pm all week during the exhibition, except for special Open Days, it is free to enter.
