Events at Grizedale

 Grizedale has a programme of events throughout the year from family events to large scale sporting events including adventure races, trail runs and car rallies.

We have a number of Art and Sculpture Exhibitions featuring at Grizedale throughout 2018. 

Balance, Stack, Play ExhibitionKayt Hughes -  Balance, Stack, Play
Kayt's exhibition is very interactive, a number of different coloured shapes have been placed, so that they can be moved and positioned by the audience to create their own sculpture.  
The exhibition is also a competition. Once you have bulit your sculpture, you need to take a photograph and send it to Kayt, the best sculpture she receives will be made by Kayt as an exhibition piece.  Come along and have a go.  The exhibition is in the Grizedale Forest Art Works Project space from 5th February - 20th May 2018.
