Showborough holds annual sculpture exhibitions of local artists work in the Spring with some brilliant works and all this in a lovely garden setting. A surprise around every corner.

This is an event which can be enjoyed by everyone, particularly on a dry day. There is a nice house exterior and some of the statues are really striking. Entry is free although one is expected to offer a contribution
