Watford Borough Council has announced a range of art exhibitions and workshops for 2025 at Cheslyn House and Gardens - one of Watford’s most beautiful assets.

Running from May 2024 to October 2025, the exhibition programme kicks off with architect and artist Tannaz Oroumchi, whose work provides an abstract view of towns and cities.

This summer there will also be a chance for artists to take part in a summer exhibition curated in partnership with Watford Area Arts Forum. This will be open to artists in the local area who are looking to build on their exhibition experience and it will be a chance to sell their work.

Bringing it all together, there will be workshops held throughout the programmed season as well as various pop-up events which will bring some music and performance to the house and gardens. The council are currently building on the programme for 2025 and are looking for new artists to exhibit as well as anyone who may be interested in running workshops at the location.

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “We are really fortunate to have so many talented artists, creatives and performers living locally. Watford has a thriving arts and culture sector and I am keen to support this. By using Cheslyn House and gardens for further art exhibitions, we will build on the vibrant cultural offer that is already present throughout our town.”

Cheslyn House and Gardens was left to Watford Council by the architect Henry Colbeck and his wife Daisy Colbeck.
