This page provides details of the events that The Sand House Charity has arranged and others that it will be involved in. Where the event is an illustrated talk at the request of a host group (for example, at a local history society or a Women’s Institute branch) we suggest that you make contact with that group to check that they allow visitors, before attending.

We are delighted to say that our in-person events have resumed, after a two-year gap caused by the pandemic. If you are interested in arranging an illustrated talk about the Sand House for a group that you are involved with, please note that, for the time being, our talks are restricted to daytimes only. For more details please contact us.

Please keep checking back on this page for updates. Thank you.

Discover the Sand House: A Guided Walk - Sunday 11 September, 11am (PRE-BOOKING ESSENTIAL)

This guided walk is brought to you as part of Heritage Open Days 2022.

Although the Sand House may have disappeared, there are still many clues to its former existence, if you know where to look. With the help of old maps and historic images, Richard Bell – a direct descendant of the Sand House’s creator – will tell the story of the development and destruction of the house and of the tunnel network that was linked to it. You will discover the whereabouts of the iconic Elephant & Mahout sculpture!

Details of how to book your places will be released in July.

This event is free of charge, but donations to The Sand House Charity would be greatly appreciated. Books and other merchandise will be available to purchase.
