The first Bayfield Hall Sculpture Trail features 40 artists, sculptors, musicians and makers in the beautiful gardens and grounds of Bayfield Hall near Holt. The trail is curated by Sarah Cannell and Fiona Roberts with kind permission to use the private gardens and chapel by Caroline and Roger Combe. An uplifting, inspiring natural space for people to experience contemporary art in a beautiful rural setting in North Norfolk.
Some works have been created specifically for the space like new music recorded by internationally acclaimed musicians Laura Cannell (Norfolk) and Seattle based Lori Goldston (Earth / Nirvana MTV Unplugged) from their forthcoming duo album and beautiful bespoke slate sculptures and tables by Cornish based Stacey Beaumont.
Some works are on tour from the hugely successful Raveningham Sculpture Trail which happens annually over the summer in South Norfolk like The Tree of Life by artist/illustrator Cindy Lee Wright and the Flaming Marsh Ponies collaborative project between Sarah Cannell, Rachael Long and Andy Jarrett.
Visitors to the site will be able to walk through 3 acres of grounds, woodland and wild gardens to view the work of over 40 artists from across the UK. The circular trail ends in the fabulous Old Stables Decorative Antiques and Interiors shops with a pop up gallery featuring works by artists from the trail. Some works on the trail are available for sale or artists can be commissioned. Visitors can also visit the Natural Surroundings Wildflower Cafe with it’s beautiful plant nursery.
