The Swinton Foundation
The Swinton Foundation is a charitable trust that supports artists, entrepreneurs and communities in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area, helping regenerate the rural landscape and with the Swinton Estate providing a base as a catalyst for further enterprise and development.
Current initiatives include supporting New Lights , a charity formed in 2010 to promote and support emerging contemporary artists in the North of England.
A fundraising exhibition showcasing some of the North’s most respected and contemporary artists will take place at Swinton Park from 18th June to 18th July 2014 (open daily, free of charge, excl. 21st June). Arranged by New Lights, the exhibition features works on display and for sale by artists including Hester Cox, Mark Demsteader, Debbie Loane, Emerson Mayes and Chloe Holt.

The Swinton Foundation is supporting New Lights with the Swinton Foundation Prize, giving the winner their own exhibition at Swinton Park in the new bar exhibition gallery space.
Don’t Miss… the amazing Druid’s Temple on the Swinton Estate, as featured on BBC’s Secret Britain, which showcased the wonderful scenery of North Yorkshire. The Druid’s Temple is located in the woods next to Swinton Bivouac, our luxury ‘glamping’ site where you can also enjoy coffee, light meals and events at the cafe bistro.
Looking Ahead… Work has commenced on our Country Club and Spa, which will include an indoor swimming pool with full spa and fitness facilities, as well as a 40-seat conservatory restaurant, coffee shop and Swinton Estate shop. Please see our press release for more information.
