Art Without Walls

For more than three decades, Yorkshire Sculpture Park has been busy breaking down barriers between the public and contemporary art, capitalising on the sprawling 500-acre Bretton Estate it calls home to create a world of ‘Art Without Walls’.

Along with iconic pieces from world-renowned artists including Antony Gormley, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, this season there’s also still time to catch the major exhibition by Swiss artist Not Vital – his first in the UK – who uses the Underground Gallery, Garden Gallery and open-air spaces to showcase his nomadic and diverse practice. From 19 November the park also welcomes Flights of Memory, the largest ever solo exhibition by painter and printmaker Angela Harding, whose work is inspired by the thriving wildlife of Britain.

To usher in the festive season, a Christmas events programme features a wreath-making workshop, a twilight walk of the Winter Pleasure Grounds, a three-course dinner accompanied by Emley Moor Brass Quartet, and a new year’s yoga retreat helps you counteract any seasonal excess. Don't forget a visit to the YSP shop – a must for picking up that perfect Christmas gift.

Yorkshire Sculpure Park, West Bretton, Wakefield, open 10am-5pm
