Back to the Cave

Back to the Cave was a first-of-its-kind exhibition of Modern and contemporary sculpture in the extraordinary setting of Clearwell Caves. Curated by Gallery Pangolin, the exhibition was held entirely underground, throughout 10 caverns, which were aptly known to miners as ‘galleries’. The exhibition successfully took modern art back to its spiritual home: the cave, with an almost prehistoric atmosphere and a wonderful unexpected discovery at every turn.

This stunning EXHIBITION ended on 29th August 2022.

The Caves are temporarily closed through September and will re-open in October. October booking for general admittance is now available.
