Access from the road is from Blackden Firs by a rough farm track. Depending on the weather parking may involve a short walk. There is limited parking in the garden for people with mobility problems. The route will be signposted.
Please arrive within ten minutes of your booking time to maintain safe distancing inside the house where the exhibition of sculptures, the film, displays and the shop will be open. All the books featured will be available to purchase. Some of the sculptures by Liz Ellis are on sale. For a few days over the Bank Holiday weekend the Old Medicine House will be a Contemporary Gallery, which means that 50% of the sales will go to The Blackden Trust.
Price £15 purchased through eventbrite.
