There's more to Croome than meets the eye. It's an unusual National Trust property, both for the quality of its designers, its story and its contemporary approach to having creative conversations with our audiences. Read on to find out about current and previous projects as well any upcoming creative opportunities at Croome.

Four Seasons Artist Commission

Following an open call earlier this year, we have commissioned Faye Claridge to produce four new sculptures inspired by the original Four Seasons statues that were once sited in our Evergreen Shrubbery.

The new sculptures will be co-produced with four community groups and will respond to Croome's unique landscape and history.

Faye creates contemporary artworks linking heritage, prisons, collections, ecology and more.

We will share more of this project as it develops.

Seven Birds of Croome

Christmas 2023

We were pleased that after an artist open call, we appointed the very talented MrASingh to work with us, and seven local community groups to decorate large bird sculptures for our Seven Birds of Croome parkland installation for Christmas 2023.

Thank you to the groups who decorated the birds under the guidance of MrASingh: The Monday Night Club, Oasis Warndon Community Hub, Pershore Craft and Chat, Hanley Castle High School, Worcestershire Association of Carers, Pershore Riverside Centre and Croome volunteers and staff.

The project responded to our Looking Closely theme and the Thomas Bewick and Marcus Coates exhibitions in the House in vibrant and colourful interpretations of Croome dotted throughout the parkland and bringing plenty of Christmas cheer along the way.

The Seven Birds of Croome sculptures have now been put into storage. You might see them again in another project.
