By Train

Kingham station is on the Paddington to Hereford line, 90 minutes from London and 20 minutes from Oxford. The station one mile from the village and an easy walk or short taxi ride (book in advance).

Entrance

Entrance is free, as are all Oxfordshire Artweeks events, though we welcome donations.

Access

There is disabled parking at Kingham Lodge.  The parking area is gravel and there is a gravel path near the entrance but otherwise once inside the garden everything is level access and firm underfoot.  Strong hands are available to help wheelchairs over the gravel if required.  There is a pushable wheelchair at Kingham Lodge available for visitors to borrow if they decide some extra help would be a good idea when they get here.

WC

There are WC at the cafe and pavilion.

Café

There is a pop-up cafe by the entrance / exit serving home made soups, cakes, tea and coffee.  There is internal and external seating.  The cafe is cash only.

Dogs

Dogs are welcome, please keep them on a lead at all times.  Dog drinking water is available.

Sales

We accept cash, cheque, cards and on occasion IOU.

Because this is a biennial charity event we aim to keep our costs to the minimum and so operate a paper based sales system.  Please bear with us, especially during busy periods, while we work as quickly and efficiently as possible, which will be slower than the automated systems of commercial sales desks.

Children’s Activities

We run a popular sculpture trail for children (with prizes), there are toy tractors to play with – incredibly popular with under 5s – and there is plenty of space to run around.

The exhibition is highly interactive but please be sensible about which sculptures to touch. Generally, those in flower beds and indoors are best just admired with the eyes.

Group Visits

Groups are very welcome, we have had art groups set up their easels, photography groups send us stunning images from their mornings work, home education groups and of course lots of schools.  We would appreciate fore warning of big groups so we can staff the cafe appropriately and manage multiple group arrivals.  Please note access is not suitable for buses.

Artist Information

Any information we have on the artists is on the exhibitors page.  If we do not have a biography of a Zimbabwean exhibitor it is because we have tried and failed to get further information about them.
