Get your culture fix with Compton Verney’s online flix

If you’re fed up with home schooling and box set bingeing but still want to learn, look at beautiful things and be motivated to try something different, then look out for Love Compton Verney - a series of short films about the incredible objects, idyllic landscape and unusual wildlife to be discovered at the historic location.

Every week a new film reveals something different about the gallery’s famous collection and 120-acres of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped grounds. From vibrant, sulphur yellow aconite flowers to the rare, bejewelled Trapani casket, that was made in Sicily and contains a secret compartment.

Five films are scheduled for March, with a focus on Compton Verney’s fabulous forest school, how x-ray technology revealed that Lucas Cranach the Elder’s Venus and Cupid hasn’t always looked the same, planting a new hedge with ace gardeners Adam and Chris, that will become a haven for wildlife for generations to come, a behind-the-scenes look at the Mary Newcomb exhibition, as it is installed in the gallery and a featurette about willow tunnels and other favourite aspects of our park, as recommended by some of our most discerning visitors, kids! 

Julie Finch, Compton Verney’s Director and CEO says: “The ongoing lockdown restrictions mean that visiting many places is very difficult, at best. So, for those people who aren’t able to visit our grounds, which are currently open, we’re bringing some of the highlights and wonders of the gallery and park direct to their homes via our website.

Each film lasts less than two minutes but shares what our experts, volunteers and visitors love most about this unique place.” 

Julie adds: “We hope you feel inspired and please do join the conversation by sharing what you love about Compton Verney with the hashtag #LoveComptonVerney. Your recommendation could even be made into one of our next films. 

You can access each film for free via Compton Verney’s website and for regular updates and alerts about forthcoming videos follow #LoveComptonVerney on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
