Julie Cope’s Grand Tour: The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry

Join us after work or in between festival shows to explore the work of ever-popular artist, celebrated Turner Prize winner, and self-styled ‘unapologetic fetishist’ Grayson Perry.

Every Wednesday in August we will open our doors after-hours for exclusive access to one of the most anticipated exhibitions of the summer, Julie Cope’s Grand Tour: The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry. Our cafe, The Pantry at Dovecot, will be open until 6pm so you can grab a drink or a coffee before immersing yourself in Perry’s world. One to definitely add to your festival calendar!

Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.
