Guided tour visiting some of the glorious sculptures in the University grounds

10 September 2020

The  beautiful Streatham Campus hosts 39 sculptures, mostly in the open.  Starting with the work  (pictured above) by Dame Barbara Hepworth, the variety of the many sculptures we shall see is quite amazing and they are all situated in the University's beautiful grounds.

 

This walk will mainly be on the level and we will meet at the bus stop in Queen’s Drive. We will start with coffee and the walk will take approximately two hours.  Many may choose to stay for lunch afterwards.

 

Please note that the rules on social distancing will of course be adhered to.  This means that our numbers for this event are strictly limited.  We also ask that, instead of signing in, you bring a pre-prepared slip of paper bearing your name and your most up-to-date telephone number just in case we need to contact you subsequently.  You should also bring your face mask though I hope it will not be considered necessary - this is a decision for the day.  Rest assured we are doing all we can to protect you by following the safety recommendations laid down by the government.

The cost for the guided walk is £3 and, as usual, it is important to reserve your place to make sure we can accommodate you.  Pressing MyButton below will connect you to the booking system:

John Fisher, writer, author, script and sketch-writer, cartoonist, public speaker. National Trust Volunteer and would-be ukelele virtuoso, now re-visits Christmas hereabouts in Exeter and in particular Charles Dickens’s immortal “A Christmas Carol”.

 

Winter or summer, at home or abroad, Dickens always wore a button-hole of holly when he gave a public reading of A Christmas Carol.  He first picked his holly sprig during an after supper stroll through Rougemont Gardens on a warm August evening in Exeter in 1858.

 

It is essential to book for this popular event as places are limited. It is, of course, free to members. Pressing "MyButton" below will connect you to the booking system
