Brian Whitmore at the Walled Garden: Wild Calligraphy

Date: 28th August 2023 - early November 2023

Through the Autumnal months, the beautiful eighteenth century Walled Garden of Norton Priory is hosting calligraphy artist Brian Whitmore of Cross Street Arts, Standish, Wigan.

Brian, a calligrapher of some 40 years, will be creating an array of artworks to discover and to happen upon around the garden, enhancing your sojourn within this rare, enchanting setting.  Fragments of quotations, thoughts, poems, philosophy etc., will be left in a mindful trail to reflect and ruminate take stock and solace from, adding sparks of wellbeing to all who visit and to this quiet, tranquil, magical garden space.
