Just a few feet away from Cartwright Hall’s front doors lies the geometric tranquillity of the Mughal Gardens, reflecting the city’s rich South Asian heritage. Inside the building, meanwhile, the displays of Cartwright Hall Art Gallery play host to a wealth of creative, diverse and imaginative fine and decorative arts.

In this unique event, join one of the gallery’s curators, Nilesh Mistry, for an illuminating tour and informal discussion, in which Nilesh will lead you through the museum’s collection, highlighting exhibits which incorporate or are inspired by the theme of Paradise Gardens.

Please meet in the Cartwright Hall foyer.
