The Garden Museum will open a new exhibition on 1 April — Christopher Lloyd: A Life at Great Dixter.
The exhibition will present the life and work of Christopher Lloyd, bringing together personal objects from Great Dixter, recollections and stories from friends and colleagues, examples of his writing and pictures of his garden.
It will be the first time that this selection of Christopher Lloyd's possessions, and those of his family, have been on public display, including his gardening galloshes and his Glyndebourne shoes, designs by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and photographs from the family's private darkroom.
From his childhood at Dixter, through his education as a gardener and the early days of the nursery business, to his later life and career, visitors will be able to examine the links between Christopher Lloyd's public persona and his private interests and enthusiasms, from his annual pilgrimages to Scotland and Glyndebourne to cooking, contemporary design, and correspondence.
