Park Life

Cannon Hall Park and its canine visitors take centre stage in Park Life, a new exhibition created by artists James Brunt and Lena Sass. The exhibition is an intriguing look at our beautiful park from the perspective of the many four legged friends that visit the park regularly.

De Morgan Collection

On display in the hall is a hand-picked selection of artworks from the De Morgan Collection. It is an unparalleled collection of work by the late 19th and early 20th century ceramicist William De Morgan and his artist wife Evelyn Pickering De Morgan.

Parks for People Project

Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens has secured earmarked funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for major improvements and conservation work around the gardens and park, including the restoration of Cannon Hall's Georgian lakes.

Cannon Hall is a unique venue for weddings and civil partnerships and the perfect setting for your special day. Fantastic photo opportunities can be found both inside the Hall and in the landscaped gardens.
