The Art of Christmas

1st December, 2018

A special art exhibition has been announced as part of Boughton House’s Christmas celebrations this December.

The Northamptonshire Estate is preparing to open its gates for its annual Christmas event, and guests will now also be able to enjoy and purchase works by five talented artists at a visiting exhibition by Lovelock Millar Gallery.

Housed in the 18th century stable block next to the main House, Boughton’s Tapestry Suite will display work by local Northamptonshire artist Chris Prout, landscapes by Zoe Taylor and ceramics by Melanie Keevil and Jewels Williams Peplow, as well as sculptures by Rachel Higgins.

Elsewhere, British-grown, hand-cut Nordmann fir, assorted potted trees, handmade wreaths, Christmas decorations and gifts will be on sale in the main courtyard and stable block gift shop.

Charles Lister, Property Manager at Boughton House, said: “Our Christmas event is becoming quite a tradition here at Boughton, with families coming from far and wide to select their trees and decorations together each year.

“This December, we have the added bonus of having the wonderful Lovelock Millar Gallery exhibiting on site. This will add another dimension to the festivities for visitors to enjoy and will offer some fantastic gift ideas too.”

Boughton’s Christmas event and special exhibition begin at 10am on Saturday 1st December and finish at 5pm on Sunday 16th December.
