Immerse yourself in a beautiful rambling outside gallery of art in all its wonderful forms.

For what was probably our last proper family ‘day out’ of the summer, we visited the Raveningham Sculpture Trail, just south of Norwich.

The Trail is presented in a gloriously natural setting of semi-wild meadows, gardens and woodland in the grounds of Castell Farm, a Tudor farmhouse on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk.

As you meander around the wonderful leafy surroundings, you’ll encounter over 50 incredible works of art, from media that ranges from crochet to laser-cut steel, as well as an inside gallery/shop and a Microkino (tiny outdoor cinema).

It’s a really great opportunity to consume lots of new art (many pieces were inspired and informed by the global situation of the past 18 months), including the short film The Owl and the Pussycat directed by Mole Hill, that won the BAFTA Award for Best Animated Short this year (2021).

Raveningham Sculpture Trail is curated by Sarah Cannell, who started the Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail, now Raveningham Sculpture Trail, in 2014 with Waveney and Blyth Arts. She is an established freelance Artist and Curator, most recently running workshops for UEA
