The summer exhibition at Sewerby Hall and Gardens is very revealing – it’s a ‘Brief’ History of Underwear.
On display in the house, and running until 14 November, the exhibition looks at how women’s bodies, in particular, have been manipulated into shape over the years by means of underwear, through the corset, bustle, girdle, brassiere and crinoline.
The East Riding Visual Arts Uplift is proud to announce two free talks by commissioned artists, Ian Kirkpatrick and Juliette Losq.
Following a hugely successful open call to artists, both nationally and internationally, the Visual Arts Uplift commissioned two artworks, ‘Beverlac’ by artist Ian Kirkpatrick, currently on display in Beverley Guildhall, and ‘Umbraculum’ by artist Juliette Losq, being exhibited at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
On four Sundays in July, there will be a chance to come to Sewerby Hall and Gardens to meet some of the characters appearing in this summer’s Rusticus Woodland Creatures Theatre performances.
They will invite visitors behind the scenes to join in with fun activities in their woodland home. Visitors will be able to unleash their creative side and get stuck in with silly outdoor crafts, games and activities, all inspired by the wonderful woodland grounds at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
The East Riding Visual Arts Uplift, working with the Humber Museums Partnership, is proud to be unveiling yet another contemporary artistic commission for interested artists to express an interest and submit their proposals.

An exciting new pilot scheme to encourage and support communities and residents to be physically, mentally and socially active has launched on a trial basis in four towns in the East Riding. Hopes are high that local residents will get involved and improve their wellbeing in Active Towns.

The Treasure House welcomes families from Friday, 9 October to Saturday, 31 October for a Where’s Wally extravaganza.
Visitors will be able to have fun finding Wally lurking amongst the displays in the Treasure House Museum and Beverley Art Gallery in the Where’s Wally Spooky Museum Search. Alongside Wally will be a set of letters, spelling out a spooky word. Families are invited to go all the way and come dressed as Wally!
A brand new event, unique to the area, will brighten up December at Sewerby Hall and Gardens this year: Enchanted Winter Woodland will take visitors on a magical outdoor journey of spectacular sounds and lights.
