Day Trip to Compton Verney – 17th April 2018

Posted on Jun 12, 2017

Visit to Compton Verney on Tuesday, April 17th 2018


Steve Bowkett and Arthur Parker are organizing a visit to Compton Verney, which is hosting the exhibition:

Ravilious & Co: The Pattern of Friendship. English Artist Designers 1922-1942

Eric Ravilious (1903 – 1942) is now recognised as one of the most important and popular British artists of the 20th century. This major new exhibition explores the influence of Ravilious and his circle and their remarkable impact on British art and design in the 1930s and 1940s.

Compton Verney has its own permanent collections, including the largest collection of British folk art in the UK. The house is set in beautiful parkland which also features several artworks. There is a café which promises “a delicious range of quick bites and hot seasonal dishes”. We intend simply to book tickets for museum entry rather than a guided tour, which will allow members to explore the various collections and park as they wish.
