When Bristol’s Easter Sculpture Festival returns to the University of Bristol’s Botanic Gardens over the Easter weekend, 19th – 22nd April 2019, we can expect Greek gods, tagelmust attired Tuareg musicians from the Sahara and a bronze fox skulking across the grass – just to name a few of the mesmerising installations.
The event has become renowned in the South West arts and gardening calendar. This year’s festival features more sculptures and sculptors than ever before, working with a wide range of different materials. The event promises to offer fun-filled activities for visitors of all age, including demonstrations by a chainsaw wood carver, children’s trails, free tours of the garden and willow weaving workshops.
With over 4,500 species of plants, the botanical garden will provide the perfect backdrop for the event. The installations will be situated across and alongside the sculptural elements of the garden, including soaring bamboos, prehistoric tree ferns, giant leaves and exotic treasures in glass houses.
Open during the Easter school holidays, children, students and university staff go free. Admission for adults over 18 starts at £8.
