The current Main Gallery exhibition, Henry Moore: Sculpting from Nature has been drawn from items from the Henry Moore Foundation’s collection at Perry Green in Hertfordshire. A visit to Moore’s studios and gardens at Perry Green has been arranged for Thursday 27 April 2017. There will be a guided tour of the 70 acre park with its iconic sculptures, fascinating studios and the gardens designed by Moore’s wife, Irina.
The Moores moved to their house in Perry Green in 1941 when their home in Hampstead was destroyed in an air raid. Over the next 45 years they laid out the fields and filled them with Moore’s large and thought–provoking sculptures and built the studios which are worth exploring in their own right as are the gardens. This is a must visit - you will not be disappointed.
On arrival our group will be served coffee and biscuits following which there will be a tour of Hoglands, home of Henry Moore. We will be split into three parties for this part of our visit, each leaving at 20 minute intervals. Free time can be spent in the grounds, shop or Visitors’ Centre. Light lunches can be obtained in the Visitors’ Centre or there is a picnic area for those wishing to bring their own lunch. The tour of the gardens, exhibition and studios begins at 2.00pm and will last about 90 minutes.
A coach will depart from Goldsworth Park Recreation Ground Car Park, Wishbone Way, at 9.00am and leave Perry Green for Woking at 3.15pm. The visit is limited to 25 and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Booking is open to Friends and Non-Friends. When booking please leave a contact telephone number and one for your next-of-kin.
