Richmond upon Thames Arts Service and Orleans House Gallery provide arts for everyone, including exhibitions in three galleries, a diverse range of arts festivals, an award-winning family-friendly education provision for all ages, as well as partnership programmes with a wide range of cultural organisations.
This year, Richmond borough celebrates its gardens past, present and future in the Gardens Festival, which runs from April to October.
Orleans House Gallery will explore the development of the English landscape garden through Arcadian Vistas: Richmond’s Landscape Gardens. This exhibition runs from 4 May to 21 July and showcases works from the Richmond Borough Art Collection alongside loans from national and local collections.
The borough-wide festival will be delivered in partnership with a variety of heritage, arts and horticultural organisations, and will include exhibitions, arts events, talks, performances and new commissions. The festival will include Richmond in Bloom and will encourage everyone in the borough to celebrate gardening and the beautiful green spaces of the borough.
Building on the success of Richmond’s Summer Festival 2012, which formed part of the London Outdoor Arts Festival, this year we will deliver our part of the 2012 legacy through a new Children’s Festival.
