New sculpture tours at Botanic Garden

'Ovum' by Diane Maclean.

Make the most of our Botanic Garden and appreciate the natural beauty and art from an expert point of view.

Jacky Oliver, an artist-in-residence at Embrace Arts centre, is leading two free tours- simply turn and go.

The tours will cover all the pieces included in this year’s show, titled “A Change of Heart” – and will include explanations and artistic perspectives of the work. The exhibition features pieces by 20 artists, including David Worthington, former Vice-President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Marigold Hodgkinson and William Pye.

The tour on September 5 begins at 6.30pm, and the tour on September 24 begins at 2pm.

Visitors are asked to meet at the main entrance to the Harold Martin Botanic Garden on Glebe Road, Oadby, LE2 2LD.
