Exhibitions at the Palace

During the year, The Bishop’s Palace hosts a range of exhibitions of works by celebrated artists, and often by artists based in the South West. Recent exhibitions have included the luminous “Breathe”, from Somerset artist Gail Mason, and a highly popular exhibition of Martin Bentham RWA’s latest paintings, which depicted Somerset in its varying moods.

Please see below for details of our current and forthcoming exhibitions:

The People’s Jubilee Exhibition

The Bishop’s Palace is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee with The People’s Jubilee Exhibition.

This will be highlighting the significance of the Queen within the local community of Wells, showing the broad and varying reach she has had across the area. All items featured have been generously loaned by local people, each with their own unique and interesting story.

This is an eclectic range of items, all of which relate to Her Majesty.

Location: The exhibition will be in the East Gallery and can be visited when the Palace is open for visitors.

Tickets: This event is included with any valid entry ticket to The Bishop’s Palace and Gardens, including The Bishop’s Palace Admission Ticket and Membership.
