GUIDED VISITS TO GREAT BARDFIELD 9th/10th June - 14th/15th July - 15th/16th September
To complement The Fry Gallery's major 2018 exhibition Edward Bawden at Home: A Working Life, we have organised six guided visits from Saffron Walden to Great Bardfield. They will take place over the Saturday and Sunday afternoons of three weekends, 9th/10th June, 14/15th July and 15/16th September from 2 pm to 5 pm and will include a visit to the Town Hall and Bawden Room, a walking tour of the village led by Janet Dyson (local author of Artists of Great Bardfield) and a reward of tea and cake. As well as passing by the artists' houses, the tour will also visit some of the locations found in their art works. The outward route from Saffron Walden will be via Little Sampford Church and the return trip will stop at Lindsell Church. Both were painted by Edward Bawden and are beautiful ecclesiastical settings in their own right.
There are two options for participating in the tours: by minibus or private car.
A. Extended guided itinerary in an 8-seater minibus, departing 1:30pm from Swan
Meadow Car Park, Saffron Walden, returning at 5 pm Price £20
B. Self-drive to meet up at Great Bardfield Town Hall by 2 pm Price £10
The total number of people on each tour will be limited to a maximum of 18
The visits are being organised for the Fry Art Gallery and led by John Ready,
