    Houghton Hall

    Anish Kapoor at Houghton Hall is opening on the 12th July and runs through until the 1st November 2020.

    The Houghton Hall exhibition of the internationally acclaimed artist and 1991 Turner Prize winner Anish Kapoor. Kapoor is regarded as one of the most influential and pioneering sculptors of his generation and is celebrated for works which enter into a profound spiritual engagement with the viewer.

    The Houghton exhibition will feature 21 sculptures as well as a selection of drawings and smaller works representative of Kapoor’s groundbreaking body of work created over the past 40 years. Presented together, this series of works will challenge the classical architecture of the house and the idyllic beauty of the grounds, whilst being in continuous dialogue and engagement with Houghton’s history.

    Curated by Mario Codognato, the exhibition at Houghton will feature some of Kapoor’s major works in mirror and stone, including Sky Mirror (2018) – a 5-metre diameter mirror of stainless steel that reflects and transforms the space around it, turning the world upside down – and a series of carved marble sculptures created in 2001 – 2003 which will be displayed across the grounds. A number of works will also be shown inside the house, including a series of dramatic sandstone sculptures which will be presented in the gallery spaces.

    Presented together, this series of work will challenge the classical architecture of the house and idyllic beauty of the grounds, whilst being in continuous dialogue and engagement with Houghton's history.

    Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors working today, known for creating ambitious public sculptures adventurous in both form and engineering across vastly different scales and materials.

    If Houghton Hall opens later this year, "A Fine Balance" will appear alongside the exhibition by Anish Kapoor. The pop-up exhibition explores narratives original to natural life forms and processes that distinguish different aspects of our environment. They reveal the fragility of unusual topographies and celebrate the cyclical process of a coastal landscape alternating between erosion and renewal. You can see an online preview of a Fine Balance featuring almost 50 artists from across the region here

    In 2019 over 400 riders took part in this cycling event based loosely on the previous haunts of the legendary black shuck hound. There are three routes of approx 28 - 30 miles each + a family friendly up to 10 mile route to get the under 16's and their families out on their bikes. The family route has been designed to have low traffic, not too many hills and also be rewarding. The routes have a very good mix of beautiful countryside rolling hills and unspoilt views.

    Snettisham Nature Reserve

    The dawn flight of up to 40,000 pink-footed geese that make their way from Iceland and Greenland to gather on the The Wash in one of the best nature spectacles in Europe..

    The arrival of the Pink-footed Geese in Snettisham has come to herald the start of the Autumn and Winter season for many bird-watchers and nature lovers.

    Every year this unique bird visits our shores in greater numbers with thousand blackening the winter sky as they head to their night roost.   Their numbers increase steadily throughout October, and by the end of November most of the geese will have arrived. The Pink-footed Goose is not only attracted to Norfolk for the Brancaster mussels or Cromer crabs, but for a rather less well known delicacy - the sugar beet. By February most will be returning home to their breeding ground in Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland.  The sight of tens of thousands of geese taking off and landing en-masse at the Snettisham reserve is one of Norfolk's natural wonders.
