Launch of Ten Thousand Daffodils 24 APRIL – 24 JUNE 2023, LOWTHER CASTLE & GARDENS

Launch of Ten Thousand Daffodils 24 APRIL – 24 JUNE 2023, LOWTHER CASTLE & GARDENS

On  24th April this year, the curtain is raised on a stunning art installation set in the gardens of Lowther Castle. Ten Thousand hand-made ceramic daffodils nod gently in the Lowther breezes, pathways carved between them so visitors can enjoy them up close.

Ten Thousand Daffodils is a charity fundraising project and the brainchild of locally based potter, Helen Ratcliffe. The aim of the project is to raise money for six amazing charities while creating a beautiful art installation in its own right.
The project has brought the local community together, with local businesses, schools and volunteers behind the project helping to build, fire, glaze and plant 10,000 ceramic daffodils as described in the famous poem by William Wordsworth.
 

“When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
…Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance”
