Group Visits

We offer interactive tours of the Sculpture Park and current exhibitions for schools, colleges, universities and other groups. Designed to meet the specific needs and interests of individual groups, tours are appropriate for all ages and levels of knowledge.

A personal approach

Tours are led by our enthusiastic and expert educators who have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of modern and contemporary art. Visits are designed to support your learning objectives and curriculum aims, and access and other needs will be considered. Interpretation of the sculptures can be adapted for SEN visitors, for example through multi-sensory materials and Makaton.

A unique space to look and think

The artworks at New Art Centre and Roche Court Sculpture Park are displayed in a number of outdoor and indoor spaces including the Sculpture Park, Gallery, Design House and Artists House. The New Art Centre exhibits over 60 internationally renowned and emerging artists, showing a changing programme of artwork from 1950 to the present day. Major exhibitions have included work by Barbara Hepworth, Richard Long, Michael Craig-Martin, Anthony Caro and Antony Gormley.

All group visits must be booked in advance and there is a fee per head. The Roche Court Educational Trust is a charity and ensures costs are as affordable as possible – all rates are subsidised by the Trust.

The fee includes fully facilitated tours, use of education room and picnic area, clipboards and drawing materials.
