Meet the Curators


Sculptor Phil Dixon and Cockington Court Centre Director and artist Marissa Wakefield met in October 2016, and decided to run the very first sculpture trail in Torbay at Cockington Court.

This idea was hugely supported by TDA, who not only gave permission to use Cockington Court as the venue but also kindly offered to provide marketing and a preview evening to launch the trail.

So far there have been three trails, in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Click on the dates to find out more about the previous trails.
