Art Roundhay Park

13/11/2019

We’re delighted to have the wonderful team from The English Art Co back in the Conservatory at The Mansion! We’ve put our heads together and created a series of exciting events over the coming months. These will combine talks about the area from local artists with a tour of the gallery, followed by tea & cake in The Garden Room. Following on from these will be some art workshops, where a series of different artists will teach a particular skill or style of art, combined with food & drinks.

Supporting local artists, learning more about Roundhay and the Park, with the opportunity to develop some creative skills, all topped off with delicious food in our Cafe Restaurant – we have a good feeling about this..

This is such a huge opportunity to benefit from the beautiful surroundings of Roundhay Park and work with The Garden Room at The Mansion to support local artists, as well as learn about the history of Roundhay Park. We’re here indefinitely now and with a footfall of nearly 12,000 over the past couple of seasons, we looking forward to developing a series of events next year.

Why Roundhay Park?

The Conservatory at The Mansion is the ideal space – with plenty of natural daylight to display the artwork, it really is a joy to spend time looking around!  The Park of course is a source of much inspiration for local artists in particular, and there is even a Roundhay Park Calendar available in the shop.  It’s packed full of beautiful images and has been produced by the Friends of Roundhay Park, a local charity who actively protect, preserve and improve the facilities of the park.

We know that many of our Garden Room regulars love to visit the Gallery in the Conservatory and vice versa.  The next step was to create events that combine Art and Roundhay Park with great food and drink – a perfect combination!
