Alice inspires artists in Lake District garden

A showcase of work by 25 talented Lake District artists will be staged at Rydal Hall at the end of this month.

The Lakes Collective of Artists and Designer Makers includes painters, printmakers, sculptors, woodworkers, ceramicists, textile artists, silversmiths, jewellers, glassworkers, bookbinders, and cabinet makers.

Examples of their work will be on display at the Bishop Bulley Barn in the grounds of the Hall, near Ambleside, from Tuesday May 24 until Monday May 30. It’s open every day from 10am till 5pm and admission is free.

The same group is also hosting the Alice Project in the Rydal Hall gardens until the beginning of June, with works of art based on the books by Lewis Carroll.

This coincides with the interactive Alice Experience being staged on May 28 and 29 by the Mystical Magical Theatre Group . The group will perform hour long performances running throughout the weekend.  Just turn up on the day and buy a ticket (£3) for the next performance at the marquee in front of the Hall

The teashop and gardens are open 10am – 5pm every day.
