Revealed - The Secret Wild

Join us at Revealed - The Secret Wild, Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust’s 60th Anniversary Art Exhibition at The Guildhall, Leicester, from Sunday 9th to Friday 14th October. It promises to be a very special event and a wonderful showcase both of local artistic talent and the Trust’s amazing nature reserves.

From oils to watercolours, mixed media to printmaking, ceramics to felted wool, a huge range of techniques and materials will interpret the wildlife, landscape, atmosphere and people found on our reserves in the two counties and celebrate 60 years of wildlife conservation.

The exhibition will be open from Sunday 9th to Friday 14th October (11am to 4.30pm daily and 11am – 1pm Friday) and will be housed in the Great Hall of The Guildhall. This Grade 1 listed building is next door to Leicester Cathedral (Guildhall Lane, Leicester LE1 5FQ) and is a superb setting for an inspirational exhibition, drawing together art and wildlife in a thrilling combination.

Artwork will be for sale and 25% of sales will go to support the Trust’s work protecting and enhancing local wildlife and wild spaces and engaging people with nature. There is no admission charge to either The Guildhall or the exhibition.

The exhibition, toilets and cafe are all on the ground floor. If you have any queries about accessibility or require assistance please telephone 0116 253 2569 or email museums@leicester.gov.uk. An accessible taxi can be booked in advance on 0116 251 5105. The Guildhall has no dedicated car park, but is within walking distance of most city centre car parks and is about a 15 minute walk from Leicester railway station on London Road. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
