Photography Exhibition coming soon to Denney's Garden

Rainham Hall in summer against a blue sky, viewed from the back lawn. In the foreground are two identical white tiled sculptures, either side of a brick path leading up to the Hall. The Hall is in the distance, a symmetrical, square Queen Anne house.

Opening in mid-February, the Denney Edition will extend into the Garden with a new exhibition of photographs following a community competition last year.

From summer to October 2019, we received over 100 entries to our Photography Competition across four categories: Architecture, Plants, Wildlife, and Under 12s. The winning selection will be exhibited for all to enjoy in the Garden for the remainder of The Denney Edition through to the end of 2021.

An overall winner and two runners up will be selected from each category by our panel of judges: Community Gardener Jesse Lock and our two photography expert volunteers, Chris and Chloe. These two have lots of experience with photography themselves and have enjoyed teaching photography workshops for other volunteers and visitors alike at Rainham Hall, so who better to judge the final prizes. Winners will be announced around the February half-term.

Inspired by Anthony Denney’s profession, this exhibition has been a great opportunity for our volunteers and community, whether that’s showing off their photography talents or picking up the new skill. We look forward to showcasing their artworks soon.

The exhibition will be nestled in the bosquet area at the far corner of the Garden, just follow the path along the veg beds and Orchard.

The Garden is free to enter. Please check our homepage for opening hours.
