AUGUST & SEPTEMBER
ArtCan Wanderlust Exhibition

3 August – 28 September

The culmination of summer art exhibitions at The Ollerod lies in the fabulous ArtCan exhibition titled Wanderlust, and it arrives at The Ollerod on 3 August 2019.

ArtCan is a non-profit arts organisation that supports artists through profile raising activities and exhibitions, an open network of ‘likeminded’ peers, and practical support structures. They seek to complement and support established gallery structures by enabling emerging talent to be experienced and purchased, and this year, this beautifully-curated exhibition called Wanderlust explores the experience of taking a holiday and giving yourself time to breathe, and ‘just be’.

Entry is free, and the exhibition will feature works of art by artists from all over the world, using a manner of different textures, styles and media to explore and uncover their travel inspiration.

“ArtCan exhibitions provide an amazing opportunity to see work you may ordinarily not have a chance to see. Exciting emerging artists now have an opportunity to showcase their creations to a new audience and so much of the work is unlike you’ve ever seen before. A true experience!”

Don’t miss this exclusive exhibition with us. For more information about the exhibition, read our blog here.

OCTOBER
An Evening of Music with Steve Knightley

Wednesday, 9 October 19:00

Join us for an unforgettable evening of music and food with the incredible Steve Knightly – English singer, songwriter and acoustic musician.

Steve Knightley is a multi-award winning singer-songwriter/musician and founder member of widely acclaimed folk/acoustic roots trail-blazers ‘Show of Hands’ who have sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall no less than five times! Peter Gabriel has described them as ‘one of the great English bands’. A constant throughout Steve’s work is his ability to root his songs in time and place, notably the West Country where he still lives.

This exclusive event is limited to 30 people only and the cost of £80 per person includes a 3-course dinner, welcome drink along with the musical performance throughout the night.

Read more about his story, in our blog here.

OCTOBER
Sichel Maison Wine Dinner

Wednesday, 16 October 19:00

We’re thrilled to be able to bring you an unforgettable evening of Vin de Bordeaux and exquisite food as we invite you to join us for our next Wine Dinner.

Ever since it was set up as a buying office in Bordeaux in 1883, Maison Sichel has remained, first and foremost, a family business .
Since that time, seven generations of the Sichel family have succeeded one another at the company’s helm and have successfully moved from wine merchant in the 1800s through to present-day winemakers.

The first Bordeaux wine merchant to create its own winery back in 1967, Maison Sichel poured every last drop of skill and know-how into its brands, and we are so excited to be able to create an evening of the perfect pairing between this range of amazingly medium to full-bodied wines, home to aromas of black currant and plums with the perfect Autumnal feast prepared by Chris and the team.

But beyond the amazing food and delicious wines is a treat that you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Max Sichel himself will be here to share his insight on the Maison Sichel journey, the wines and the intricacies that have led this family estate to become one of the most esteemed front-runners of Bordeaux splendour.

Enjoy a 4-course meal with 4 brilliantly paired wines for £70 per person.  Space is limited, so book your place soon.

For bookings, or more information, contact us on (01308) 862 200 or email us on reception@theollerod.co.uk
