Welcome to the Friends of  the Turrill Sculpture Garden page









Summertown 2000 was started in 1998 to raise funds to build a local public sculpture garden behind Summertown Library in South Parade.  This was achieved in May 2000 when the Turrill Garden was opened, thanks to the support of many generous local donors and especially the Venables family of Shepherd and Woodward.   Now we continue to support the garden maintenance and publicise the existence of the garden and the exhibitions in it. 


The Society changed its name to the Friends of the Turrill Sculpture Garden in November 2004 and always welcomes new individual contacts and the support of Corporate members. For Corporate Members  £250.00 is a suggested minimum fee for Corporate Members and in turn we will do our best to spread word of their support for all we do for the local community and to encourage the arts.


Friends and contacts are invited to any private views that are held for exhibitions and receive the annual Newsletter.

We no longer charge a membership fee for individual members so you only need to fill in the 'Contacts' on the Home page to be on our emailing list.
