Spring photography exhibition at Smallhythe Place
This free exhibition is a celebration of Kent’s wildlife. Photographers far and wide have captured the best the county has to offer. Now the winning images from the competition are being showcased at Smallhythe Place.
This spring there is a new photography exhibition in the Barn Theatre at Smallhythe Place. It displays the winning images entered in the Kent Wildlife Trust Photography Competition 2016. The exhibition includes shots of an unsuspecting water vole and an astounding sunset of intense oranges and reds.
The atmospheric setting of the Barn Theatre compliments the stunning photos captured by the competition winners. The images were entered into four categories:
- Landscape, coastline and people.
Working for wildlife
Kent Wildlife Trust works to protect the diversity of Kent’s wildlife, and increase awareness of the ongoing threat to its welfare. In 2016 the Trust awarded Smallhythe Place the Silver Gilt Award, recognising its projects in place to improve the habitats for its animal residents.
Visitors can see how Smallhythe Place is continuing to conserve and protect its wildlife in the garden with projects such as the insect hotel, bird baths, and the maintenance of the pond that is home to the Great Crested Newt.
The exhibition is open 11-5pm Wednesdays – Sundays and Bank Holidays between 1 March – 23 April. Free entry.
