Art in Action is held in the beautiful grounds of Waterperry House and Gardens, some of the finest gardens in Oxfordshire.
Waterperry Gardens offers visitors the chance to savour a bygone age in the Country Life Museum and the Saxon Church. There is also a well stocked garden centre, an art gallery, a shop with hundreds of beautiful gift ideas, and a teashop which serves freshly made lunches, cakes and teas.
Waterperry House is a hybrid of architectural styles. The elegant Queen Anne facade was rebuilt by Sir John Curson in 1713. The village of Waterperry is recorded in the Doomsday Book of 1086. These days Waterperry House is used as an educational centre for residential studies in Philosophy, Economics and the Arts.
Waterperry House is owned by the Fellowship of the School of Economic Science, an educational charity which organises Art in Action. Most of the volunteers who staff Art in Action attend Philosophy courses at one of the School’s many centres in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand.
Rooms in Waterperry House are available for hire. For further information contact 01844 339518
