Sculpture showcase at Salisbury Cathedral

Date Posted: 03/12/2010

Groups planning a trip to Wiltshire next year, can look forward to a host of special events and exhibitions at historic Salisbury Cathedral.

From the 1st April until the autumn, one of the UK’s best-known sculptors, Antony Gormley, will display his Flare II at Salisbury Cathedral. An interpretive dense wire mesh of a falling figure within a wire cloud, the sculpture will be suspended in the cathedral’s south transept, illuminated by the natural sunlight.

With major exhibition Constable and Salisbury: The Soul of Landscape being hosted by Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum from the 20th May to 25th September, groups can take advantage of a combined ticket offer for the exhibition, museum and a guided tour of Salisbury Cathedral for £10.75 per person.

Finally, an exhibition of Sean Henry’s sculpture visits the cathedral for three months, from the 22nd July to the 30th October. Visitors can view Henry’s sculptures of human figures on the cathedral plinths and in unexpected spaces, with larger works in display in the cathedral close.

Event highlights include the 2011 Flower Festival, running from the 14th to 19th June, while the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance will be giving twice-daily performances at the cathedral from the 26th to 29th July.
