Capability Brown at Blenheim Palace, 13 February - 2 May, 2016

Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown changed the face of 18th Century England, designing country estates and mansions, moving hills and making flowing lakes and serpentine rivers, a magical world of green.

2016 is the 300th anniversary of ‘Capability’ Brown’s birth and to commemorate the occassion the Embroiderers' Guild will be joining a nationwide celebration.

Blenheim Palace was one of Brown’s finest examples of his work and, in 1763, he transformed Blenheim Palace’s landscaped Parkland which, although appearing natural, is ‘contrived to pleasing effect’.

Oxford Branch are proud to be part of an exhibition of unique work specially created for the exhibition "Capability Brown at Blenheim Palace"
