After the success of our first sculpture trail at Bayfield Hall, north Norfolk, we are looking for artists interested in exhibiting at our second trail in October 2023. Jointly curated by Sarah Cannell (Raveningham Sculpture Trail) and Fiona Roberts (Love Light Norwich) the trail will take place in the historic grounds of the beautiful Bayfield Hall with kind permission from Caroline and Roger Combe.

Sculpture Trail Dates: 4th – 29th October 2023, open Wed – Sun 10-5pm.We are looking for artists who are interested in responding to the beautiful grounds which have a mix of formal gardens and a wilder area with the remains of the family chapel all overlooking the River Glaven, a unique chalk stream environment. There is also the Wildflower Centre on site and public walks through the woods. The well established inspiring natural surroundings for artists to respond to.

Our second annual Sculpture Trail at Bayfield Hall is an opportunity to exhibit and sell artwork, building on the success of Raveningham Sculpture Trail and Woodland Lumiere in South Norfolk. The project is brought to you by Creative Odyssey CIC, arts projects to inspire and soothe the soul.

Space Allocation and Site Visits

There will be the opportunity for selected artists to have a tour of the site with the team to discuss spaces. Each artist is required to propose a first, second and third choice of space and then spaces will be allocated the following week. We will do as much as we can to find the right fit for each artist and artwork.

Marketing and Social Media

Instagram and Facebook are an important part of our reach to visitors and building the excitement for the trail. Please follow and link as much as possible to our Instagram @bayfieldhallsculpture #bayfieldhallsculpturetrail There will be good road signage and a trail brochure featuring an image and short text for each artist, this will be on the website too.

Trail Sales and Pop Up Gallery

We aim to sell works from the trail for our artists but there is also the opportunity for those wanting to show more experimental works which may not be for sale. All Artists taking part in the Trail can put additional smaller 3D works into a new pop up gallery space in the old stable block. 

Commission on all artworks is 35%, this goes towards running the Trail and any profit is put into the Creative Odyssey CIC which delivers Arts, Nature and Wellbeing projects at Raveningham and Bayfield including the Raveningham Sculpture Trail, Woodland Lumiere, Bayfield Sculpture Trail, Workshops, Community Pottery amongst others, more info at 


It is the Artist’s responsibility to ensure that their artworks are installed safely and a risk assessment sheet is completed outlining the method of installation. Every Artist taking part in the Bayfield Sculpture Trail must have their own insurance in place. If you don’t currently have Insurance for your practice then the simplest way to do this is to join Artists Newsletter for an annual fee of £38 which includes insurance for individual artist practitioners. More info here There will be a risk assessment of the Trail prior to opening to the public and if there are any issues with the installation of artworks the Artist would work closely with the Curator and Site Manager to resolve them in time for the Trail opening. If an artwork is ultimately deemed unsafe or unsuitable the Curator and Site Manager reserve the right to exclude the work from the Trail.


All Artists taking part will be required to invigilate at the Sculpture Trail for 2 days 9.30-5pm. We can cover for any artists who live outside Norfolk/Suffolk. There will be a Site Manager on site at all times who will train and support invigilators.
