27/12/2018 to 31/01/2019 BASILDON PARK ILLUMINATED WOODLAND WALK
 BASILDON PARK (NATIONAL TRUST)

As Autumn sets in at Basildon Park, the woodland really comes to life. The stunning display of Autumn colour on the trees is being further enhanced by an illuminated woodland display, which will last until January this year so you can enjoy the illuminated woodland walk throughout the winter as well. We've added hundreds more lights this year, so it's set to be extra special. NOTES: Wear sturdy shoes for walking through the woods. Uneven ground surface through the woodland, with steps up onto the path. The woodland walk can be found a short walk beyond the Stableyard. Dogs on leads welcome.

10/01/2019 to 22/01/2019 CURVILINEAR - PHOTOGRAPHY AND CERAMICS EXHIBITION

Curvilinear brings together hand-built ceramics by Sally Dorrity and contemporary photography by Tracy Florance. Tracy has travelled widely, and takes her camera with her wherever she goes, hoping to capture the essence of the places she visits. She is drawn to interior and external architecture, in which she attempts to capture patterns and shapes that others might miss. Sally works in stoneware clay to hand-build her pots. Her ceramics and skills are continually evolving and progressing, as she pursues her fascination with form and texture. Sally’s ceramics and Tracy’s photographs complement each other perfectly, with Sally’s glazes and Tracy’s images of reflections in glass and water often echoing each other in form and colour.

06/02/2019 to 10/02/2019 PERFORMANCE PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

Performance was conceived early in 2012 as British excitement grew in anticipation of hosting the Olympics. Local sporting events were photographed as communities played their part in preparing for the Games. Other photographers concentrated on artistic events, from dance and theatre to street performance and music. Performance is an exciting and often adrenaline-filled genre of photography as dynamic action shots can be some of the most challenging to take. This exhibition highlights the transitory nature of action-orientated photography. PERFORMANCE is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle. Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change. Disabled visitors are advised to check with us before visiting an exhibition so that suitable access can be provided. PLEASE NOTE: Visitors to this exhibition can view images at both 3 Forbury Place, and Abbey Gardens, which are just a short walk away from each other. Open 10am – 3pm Daily, Free Admission.
