Constable: The Theme Park

“Think of the potency of combining one of Britain’s greatest artists with the twin national obsessions of food and gardening. Rumpelstiltskin couldn’t do it better. Hence the rather eclectic nature of the planning application for ‘Horkesley Park’ – an interactive experience of ‘the life and times of John Constable’, to include a Fine Art ‘outstation’ of the National and other leading galleries, side by side with a Suffolk Punch breeding centre, a Farming Yesteryear exhibition, a Food Experience, gardens dedicated to the great plant collectors and an authentic Chinese garden.”
