Historic quarter to get contemporary exhibition

First published in News

ONE of Worcester's most historic streets will be transformed by an exhibition of contemporary art.

The display will stretch from the National Trust owned Greyfriars House and Garden and out into Friar Street from Saturday, May 24 to Saturday, June 21.

People will be able to explore Sculpture at Greyfriars and follow the trail which continues in shop windows of independent traders up and down the road, allowing visitors to see more of the historic quarter and discover a number of boutiques at the same time.

Rachael Trimm, house and services manager, said: "This is a really exciting event for everyone here at Greyfriars as we have been able to get surrounding businesses involved on presenting these inspiring sculptures, giving the exhibition a real community feel.

"It is great to see how much the local businesses are bouncing back from the difficult start to the year and working together to create this exhibition."

The medieval merchant’s house comes with a walled garden which is a peaceful oasis in the middle of the city and its hidden nooks and crannies make a perfect outdoor gallery space.

The exhibition features a selection of sculptures from national and international artists and all works in the exhibition are available for sale.

Greyfriars House and Garden is open Tuesday to Saturday from 1pm to 5pm, with no booking required.

Since when did we have an historic quarter?
Worcester is getting very cheesy, bring back the Lytchgate and St Martins gate. Original medieval names, not Essex 80's shopping centre spin.
