The biannual Fresh Air exhibition in Quennington is one of the loveliest ways to spend a summer’s afternoon….
The beautiful Old Rectory house and gardens evoke a real sense of the old English country way of life, but despite this provincial setting, with sculptors from across the UK offering pieces, it has a wide-reaching feel.
Sculptures are dotted across the lawns and throughout the landscaped spaces, down on the river bank and around the kitchen garden, tennis courts and swimming pool.
A tea tent provides simple lunches, coffees and ice creams from local favourites Winstones. Munchkin and I met some friends – big and little – there and pottered around in the sunshine.
Fresh Air ran till 5 July and returns in 2017. You can find out more information on the sculptors and their work, which is available to buy, here.
