The stunning house and grounds provide a glorious backdrop for exhibits submitted by internationally renowned artists as well as those who are up-and-coming.

This year’s show includes a record number of exhibits from 58 sculptors, covering all shapes and forms and embracing abstract to figurative.

“We are delighted to feature 10 sculptors new to Birtley House this year,” says marketing manager Janet Hall. “For example, Ian Campbell-Briggs, who opened last year’s show, will present some of his own intricate metal pieces, which contrast beautifully with the smooth stonework of another newcomer, Lilly Henry.

“The choice of materials chosen by the artists and their inventive approach gets more exciting every year.”

With sculpture demonstrations, choirs singing, a quiz for children and home-made refreshments, there will be something for everyone – and dogs on leads are welcome.

• The Sculpture Garden at Birtley House, Bramley GU5 0LB is open daily from Saturday May 2 to Sunday May 31, 11am to 5pm. Tel: 01483 899513. Web:
