Artists are being invited to create pieces of work inspired by the famous Bressingham Gardens for a competition.

The Bloom family, which owns the gardens near Diss, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, has invited artists to submit artworks based on their interpretation of gardens.

The artwork created will be exhibited in the 18th-century High Barn as part of the Bressingham Gardens ‘Inspiration Weekend’ on September 8 and 9,

The winner will receive a free three-night stay for 18 family and friends in Bressingham Hall, a Grade II listed mansion, set amongst the 17-acre gardens, and once the Bloom family home. It now offers holiday lets and accommodation for weddings held in the adjacent High Barn.

The judges are Christine Grey-Wilson, an art teacher and award-winning illustrator for Kew Gardens and the RHS, Cally James, also an artist and chair of Suffolk Open Studios, and Adrian Bloom, author and creator of the Foggy Bottom garden. Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to vote for the one they like the most.
