Easter Sculpture Festival 2023

Easter Sculpture Festival 2023


During the event visitors can view and buy sculpture, enjoy demonstrations and have a go at willow weaving, pottery, woodworking, stone carving, and take a tour of the garden which will be full of spring flowers.

Please select the day you would like to attend and the number of tickets you require for full paying adults.

Did you know that the University is a charity?
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can choose to make a 10% gift aid donation on top of the standard entry fee. This allows the University of Bristol Botanic Garden to claim an extra 25 per cent refund of tax from the government on each adult ticket which will help to fund the development of the Botanic Garden. All we need is your full name and home address (which will be kept securely) and we can then reclaim this money directly from HM Revenue and Customs. You may only make a gift aid donation for yourself or your family.

If you are in one of the categories for free entry to the garden, there is no need to book a ticket in advance. Please report to the Welcome Lodge on arrival with proof of your eligibility for free entry.

Those who are entitled to free entry are:
Children under 18,
Students from all institutions,
University of Bristol staff (including retired) and alumni,
Members of the Friends of the Botanic Garden,
Carers of a visitor.

Location: UOB Botanic Garden, Stoke Park Road, Stoke Bishop, Bristol, BS9 1JG

Time: 10am-5pm

Photography Workshop - How to Shoot Spring Pictures - 30/05/2023



This one day workshop with Graham Parish is aimed at the beginner and will result in a greater understanding of your camera enabling you to take better pictures.

The morning session will take place in the classroom. You will learn about some simple photography techniques like Shutter Speed, Aperture, Depth of Field and Macro.

After the lunch break, under the guidance of the tutor you will go out into the Botanic Garden and put the techniques you've learnt into practice. Your tutor will always be there to answer questions and help you with your camera controls.

There will be time at the the end of the day for a review discussion and an opportunity to view and share images.

You will need a digital camera or smartphone with Aperture and Shutter Speed settings (ie not just 'Auto')
