‘Heath at 100 – A life in Cartoons’

March – May 2017

Saturdays – Wednesdays 11am – 4pm (last entry)

Arundells is delighted to announce that its latest exhibition, ‘Edward Heath at 100 – A Life in Cartoons’ is now open. The exhibition reflects on Sir Edward’s political life, including the rivalries with Harold Wilson, Enoch Powell and Margaret Thatcher that shaped his career.

The exhibition features work by 25 of the most respected political cartoonists of the second half of the twentieth century including Trog (Wally Fawkes), Vicky (Victor Weisz), Low (David Low), Garland (Nicholas Garland), Cummings (Michael Cummings) and Ingram Pinn, who still draws for the Financial Times

It features cartoons documenting the milestones of Heath’s 51-year parliamentary career, spanning his appointment as Harold Macmillan’s Minister of Labour in 1959, his five years leading the Opposition, his four-year premiership, his narrow defeats in the two 1974 general elections and then as a veteran MP during the Thatcher, Major and Blair years, culminating in almost a decade as ‘Father of the House’.

Also making a guest appearance: the ‘Spitting Image’ puppet of Sir Edward Heath from the iconic ITV satirical puppet show.

‘Sailing, Music, Travels’

Saturday 3rd June – Monday 3rd July 2017

Salisbury Group of Artists Exhibition

Arundells is delighted to host an exhibition of work by local art group the Salisbury Group of Artists.

Sir Edward was a keen supporter of the arts and his extensive art collection includes works by both famous and lesser known artists. Pieces chosen for the show will reflect his interests in sailing, music and travel, as well as his love for Arundells itself.

The Salisbury Group of Artists was established in the 1940s and exists for the advancement and practice of painting and allied visual arts. The group comprises people of all ages and offers its members opportunities to develop new skills and to exhibit their work.

Works on show will be available to buy. A percentage of sales will go to the Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation.
