a little bird told me
April 12 - May 31
In celebration of the Countryside Higher Level Stewardship Scheme The HopBarn have been meticulously charting bird sightings and songs – identifying 71 species of birds (of which 16 have UK Red Conservation status).
In this their first visual arts exhibition you can delve into a collection of books which showcase visual artists, composers, fashion designers, carpenters, photographers who share The HopBarn’s appreciation of birds.
Young birds once they learn to fly after falling and retrying, take off to explore the world and on their journey, they find their soulmate before prospecting to make a home, either in a new location or returning to their point of origin. The HopBarn – the third generation to care for The HopBarn – are not unlike birds in their life cycle having returned to this [Southwell Farm] after exploring the world. They have built a home and started to sow their dreams and aspirations on the land.
So, why not take advantage of this opportunity to delve into our books and take a walk around the farm to see and hear the extraordinary, feathered friends who shape daily life at The Hopbarn.
