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.

SEPTEMBER
Faulty Towers The Original Dining Experience

Tuesday 10 September, 19:00 & Wednesday 11 September 19:00.

Back, by popular demand: As if May’s night of mayhem and madness wasn’t enough, we’ve invited Basil, Sybil and Manuel back for two more nights of Faulty Towers franticness in September.

Join the crew for a 2-hour West End Production show while enjoying a 3-course meal, dutifully served by Basil’s team of merry men and women. Running for over 7 years on the West End, this dining experience has been entertaining audiences all over the world.

As the May dinner sold out in a few hours, make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity to be completely entertained from start to finish. We cannot guarantee that your cheeks won’t hurt from too much laughter, and we can’t promise that Manuel won’t drop a serviette on your head, but what we can assure you of is an unforgettable evening filled with fun, great company, and fantastic food.

Costs are £70 per person. 50% deposit taken upon booking. Terms & Conditions apply.

For more information, call us on 01308 862 200 or email our team on reception@theollerod.co.uk

The Ollerod Garden Party

Saturday, 31 August 2019: midday – 5pm

Following the huge success of our Summer Market, we’ve decided to sandwich this glorious summer with another outdoor, garden event filled with good food, great music and unforgettable memories.

Bring the whole family and a couple of picnic blankets and come and enjoy the afternoon with us in the sunshine on Saturday 31 August from midday until 5pm.

Entrance is free with food and drinks available to purchase throughout the afternoon.

And while you’re here, why not take a stroll through our building and take in the amazing Wanderlust Art Exhibition that will be in situ until 28 September, a wonderful ArtCan exhibition of work by artists from all over the world.

We are also dog-friendly, so feel free to bring your 4-legged friends along too.

We look forward to spending the day with you!
