Dazzle@Dovecot Tickets

We are delighted that Dazzle@Dovecot will be going ahead this year. It will, however, look and feel a little different . We have introduced certain measures to make your visit as enjoyable and safe as possible. All of us will be wearing visors, hand sanitiser and gloves will be available and all jewellery will be cleaned before and after handling. We will be limiting the number of people in the exhibition to allow you to browse and shop at a safe distance, so we have introduced a handy booking system, where you can book a time slot to guarantee your entry. You can still pop in to visit but we advise booking ahead to avoid waiting.

Dazzle@Dovecot

We are both excited and apprehensive to be going ahead with the exhibition this year as most similar events have been cancelled or postponed. We thought long and hard about the implications and whether the exhibition can be viable without the umbrella of the Festival and the Fringe. As you can see from the above, we have introduced many safeguards to ensure that you can visit in safety and comfort. The designers are raring to go and finally venturing back to their workshops to create stunning work for you to look at and hopefully purchase. 

Dates 22 August to 12 September. Opening times 10am to 5.30pm daily (last entry 5pm) Thursday lates - open until 8pm. Contact info@dazzle-exhibitions.co.uk.

Dovecot Studios Exhibition

Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant presents the design, fashion, and art of a group of radical young architects, designers, photographers, and artists who redefined the concept of youth and the established order of post-war Britain.

At the forefront of this group of young revolutionaries were Mary Quant, Terence Conran, and Bernard and Laura Ashley, who were influenced by the teachings of Eduardo Paolozzi and the Independent Group. Explore the furniture, fashion, textiles, lighting, ceramics, and printed material that defined Mid-Century Modern in an exhibition that delves into not only the style, but the socioeconomic importance of this transformative period.

In the interest of safety exhibition tickets must be booked in advance with time-slots for visitors to choose from. Book tickets here and read more about planning your visit to Dovecot here.
