Sculpture in the Garden

Art Exhibitions

Art-lovers will be thrilled by the range of exhibitions taking place here in Wiltshire this September. New exhibition Sculpture in a Landscape 1969 – 2020 will run from 3 to 27 September in the garden of a striking architect-designed modernist home situated high on the Marlborough downs. The exhibition will feature work by over thirty sculptors from across England and Wales, including William Pye, who created the font in Salisbury Cathedral.

At Salisbury Cathedral itself, the Spirit and Endeavour exhibition continues, showcasing artwork by the likes of Henry Moore, Antony Gormley and Grayson Perry. Meanwhile, elsewhere in Salisbury you can enjoy #PAUSE Art Exhibition until 26 September at Fisherton Mill, featuring gouache sketches and oil paintings by Wiltshire Landscape artist Rob Hames. Running throughout September, Chippenham Museum's exhibition Spotlight On: Modern and Contemporary Art brings together nearly 100 years of modern and contemporary art from the collection of Chippenham Museum.

Cookery Classes

Ready to brush up on your home cooking skills? There are some fantastic cooking classes to choose from taking place in Wiltshire this September - a wonderful and creative way to spend a day, whatever the weather! Vaughan’s Cookery School near Devizes will inspire you to enhance your culinary skills with classes like Middle Eastern Mezze, Perfecting your Pastry or Indian Street Food. Meanwhile, the Farm Cookery School near Chippenham have set up special cookery pods to aid social-distancing while you cook. And they've got plenty of classes to choose from in September, including their Indian Thali Cookery Experience, Young Adults or Beginners Cookery Class, and Taste of Italy – lasagne and risotto.


Festivals and Markets

Malmesbury Virtual Carnival has been running throughout August, and continues until 6 September. The ancient market town has been home to a Carnival for nearly a century, and for 2020 the Carnival has simply moved online. On the evening of 5 September, there will be the Virtual Festival Procession featuring local people and extravagant costumes.

Over in Salisbury, Car Boot Sundays are back, with lots of opportunities to browse and buy on Sunday 20 September. And the new Innox Market in Trowbridge continues on the third Sunday or the month, with handmade arts and crafts, vintage clothing, street food, fresh produce and West Country ale and cider.
