The Sculpture Garden returns to the Odney Club by the River Thames

The Cookham Sculpture Garden will return this weekend to the Thames side gardens of the Odney Club.

In 2021 the event was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic but the organizers are delighted to have this event returning as the highlight of the Cookham Festival.

The grounds are 148 acres alongside the River Thames and around Lulle Brook with gardens located close to the mansion and along the waters edge.

Opening May 7, the fortnight-long event will feature a wide range of experiences for people of all ages, including an art exhibition and several theatrical and musical performances.

A spokesperson said: “The Sculpture Garden will not only fire the imagination of professional garden designers and landscape architects, but will also offer great inspiration to those looking to furnish a more modest landscape or perhaps purchase a unique and lasting gift for a loved one.

“The Sculpture Garden will showcase a superb collection of works, all by living artists.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to see a huge range of creative sculptures by well-known and emerging artists using a huge range of materials from wood, stone and metal to ceramics, resin and glass.

“Pieces will range from small and portable, suitable for any garden or patio, to dramatic creations that require significant space to feel at home.”

There is a £3 entrance fee to the gardens and once you are in all the works on display you can buy them.

As well as walking around the park and seeing the sculptures, visitors can enjoy tea, coffee and cakes at the restaurant with meals available on certain days.
