Get creative in May at Polesden Lacey

In May we like to celebrate artistic creativity at Polesden Lacey. So many people find inspiration as the gardens bloom with colour and buzz with the sound of home-coming bees. Find out about all the creative activities happening throughout May from painting to photography.

Artists in residence month

Our artists in residence will be painting in the formal gardens and grounds at Polesden Lacey on weekdays throughout the month of may. Feel free to stop and watch as they paint an aspect of this special place or why not ask them about their work, techniques and inspiration.
