Parham House, your destination of choice for art and afternoon tea

24th May 2019

This spring, stimulate all your senses at Parham House & Gardens. Parham is renowned for its historic architecture and gardens, but did you know that it is also home to a fascinating collection of paintings, furniture and antiques?

Feast your eyes on one of the UK’s finest and most important collections of needlework on 22 May – 2 June, with access to some rare and wonderful pieces of work not usually on display.

Or visit a special exhibition by Parham’s artist-in-residence, celebrated photographer Elizabeth Zeschin from 5 – 30 June. The display will include photographs of Parham House and Gardens as well as the surrounding landscape, taken on a large format Sinar 10×8” View Camera.

Later in the summer, watercolour enthusiasts will delight in a dedicated one-man exhibition of the work of Sussex artist Gordon Rushmer. Available to view at Parham from 1 – 15 September.

If you would like to create your very own masterpiece, Parham is hosting some exciting photography and embroidery workshops during the season, so that you can hone your own skills and fire your imagination.

Once you’ve quenched your appetite for art, you can indulge yourself in the Big Kitchen, a former Tudor kitchen, with a home-made Parham-style afternoon tea using locally sourced produce, and other treats. The perfect way to sit and reflect on your day of exploring all that Parham has to offer.
