MAY 6th - MAY 2nd 2022
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN
It is with regret that following the recent mutation of Covid-19 and the dramatic rise in infection rates, the Cookham Festival Committee has reluctantly decided to postpone this year’s Festival to May 2022.
Whilst a rapid introduction of the vaccination will have an impact, we are not confident that we would be able to deliver a full Festival programme of 40 events to the standard the village would expect and be comfortable attending.
Hopefully, all our hard work has not been in vain and the majority of our contributors will be happy to transfer their commitment to 2022.
Rest assured that the Festival Committee will work even harder to deliver a bumper Festival in 2022.
Chairman. Cookham Festival
THE SCULPTURE GARDEN @ THE ODNEY
The Sculpture Garden has found its own unique voice under the 10 year curatorship of Lucy Irvine. Trained as a sculptor and having worked within the Arts for many years, Lucy brings her own eclectic yet accessible take on curating.
The Sculpture Garden came into being as a companion to Artspace via connections that founders of Barn Galleries had with Cookham. This biennial exhibition offers the opportunity for serious collectors to enjoy and buy as well as new comers to the art world to begin their foray into collecting in a professional yet friendly environment.
All work is by living artists, Lucy showcases newly emerging artists who are still experimenting as well as established names in the sculpture world.
The Festival has received a much-appreciated donation from the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust.
