Garden Photography Exhibition

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.

Inspired by Denney’s profession, the local community and volunteers entered over 100 photographs for a chance to be exhibited in the Garden at Rainham Hall.

From summer to October 2019, entrants submitted photographs across four categories: Architecture, Plants, Wildlife, and Under 12’s. 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 have been 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.

The winners have been announced and featured on our social media through April 2020. The photographs, printed on slate tiles, will be nestled in the bosquet area at the far corner of the Garden, past the veg beds and Orchard.

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

The Denney Edition: celebrating an icon of 20th century style

In partnership with creative company The Decorators, and a host of designers and local craftspeople, the Hall has been transformed into a ‘living magazine’ to showcase Denney’s life and work. Exhibits include objects and photographs from Denney’s personal life, with spaces representing themes of fashion, jewellery, arts, interiors, food, gardening, and travel.
