Rita Thorn

27th April– 3rd May 2016

  • I trained in art and teaching at Cardiff University. Currently I pursue my own art practice and offer courses and workshops from my purpose built home studio. I have held exhibitions in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.
  • As a mixed media artist whose inspiration to paint is interpreting the world around me, I particularly love using acrylic inks combined with other media to create texture, colour and light.
  • My journey has been experimental and results are often surprising. I am always working towards being able to do justice to the subjects I paint or to the ideas I wish to express which are sometimes less tangible.
  • This will be an ongoing and exciting challenge for me since I am constantly pushing the boundaries of the materials I use in order to achieve what I want to say.

Open Daily 10am – 5pm

Entry free

The Gardens were originally developed in the early 1800's and its centrepiece is the Bandstand.

Facing the Bandstand is the Proscenium Building where we now have our Gallery.

Follow for a history of the gardens and for information about Friends of the Bandstand and Gardens(FOMBAG).


  1. There is wheelchair access to the gallery from the path between the tennis courts and the gallery.
  2. For exhibitors delivering their work, there is a locked bollard to be removed at the gardens entrance. See link below for details.
  3. Unfortunately, there is no disabled parking in the gardens.
  4. Exhibitors should take care to design their exhibition layout with wheelchair use in mind.

For full information about accessibility, please follow this link:


 Typical annual foot-fall is 22000.

If we take out the impact of Festivals then the weekly average is 400 per week.

This varies according to the variables of weather, social media, networking, number of artists, and the appeal of the Exhibition
