Spring at Upton House

Spring is upon us and the daffodils at Upton House & Gardens are now out. Our 7,000 tulips will gradually come into flower during April with over 20 different varieties, creating wonderful displays in different parts of the garden.

The Cadbury’s Easter Egg trail makes a great reason for families to visit Upton over the Easter weekend with lots to do inside and out.

Our New Shell Art Exhibition opens on 18 April in the Squash Court Gallery. A selection of posters and original artworks, on loan from the Shell Advertising Art Collection, will be at Upton in the home of Walter Samuel, 2nd Viscount Bearsted, former Shell chairman and son of the company’s founder, Marcus Samuel. This collection of posters demonstrates a wide range of artistic styles, both traditional and modernist, and employed artists with established reputations as well as promoting new talent such as Graham Sutherland and Ben Nicholson.

Our ‘Summer of Music’ this year features the Warwick University Big Band on Father’s Day, three indoor concerts with piano, violin and saxophone and of course our famous Jazz Party. Details of all these events are on our website.

Andrew Overton, Assistant Visitor Services Manager said “The events calendar this year is packed with a wonderful variety of things for our visitors to enjoy and we hope the new concerts we have arranged for the evenings in June, July and September will be really special events, with award winning musicians.”

For more information call 01295 670266.

Opening times and dates are on the website.
