Exhibitions and demonstrations

June will see the start of a summer of exhibitions in the house, from 'Standen Revived - Mrs Beale's global garden' delving into the history of the garden revival to selling exhibitions, where local artists will be available to talk about their work alongside a selection of pieces to purchase.

Summer holiday family fun

Throughout the school summer holidays we'll be running a ‘Play’ trail for all the family get together and play games throughout the garden, inspired by those the Beale family used to play.
