GARDENS

QUICK PICKS

Back in bloom

Around the county

Having stood derelict for more than 35 years, this spring sees the historic Grade II listed Kirkleatham Walled Garden, near Redcar, reopening following a multi-million pound project to restore the garden to its former glory with beautiful designs and displays inspired by the significant heritage of the Kirkleatham Estate. The gardens will provide catering, hospitality and horticultural training with opportunities for local residents of all ages to improve their skills, qualifications and experience.

1 W I L D L I F E WAT C H An artistic response to conservation at Nunnington Hall, Change In Attitudes displays 5,000 small porcelain black rhinoceros horns, each representing one of the remaining black rhinos left in the world. Local artist, Layla Khoo, was invited to respond to the big game hunting trophies in the house. Each visitor is invited to take one of the 5,000 ceramic rhino horns home as a souvenir, but with the moral dilemma that each one taken cannot be replaced and will leave fewer and fewer for others to experience. Until November.

2 OLD MASTERS Over 50 works from one of the UK’s most significant collections of Old Master Drawings are set to go on display at Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery in 2020 as part of a new exhibition.
