Enter our competition to win a weekend break, including two exhibitions, a goody bag and afternoon tea.

This year, four of Yorkshire’s most influential visual arts organisations – the Henry Moore Institute, The Hepworth Wakefield, Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park (which together make up the Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle) celebrate the career of one of Britain’s greatest sculptors, Sir Anthony Caro with a summer programme of exhibitions and events. To celebrate, we’ve teamed up with the YST to offer one lucky reader a weekend away in the countryside with a partner.

Win a weekend break, including two exhibitions, a goody bag and afternoon tea

Caro in Yorkshire (18 July – 1 Nov) will showcase 80 works by the artist, spanning 60 years and ranging from figurative studies on paper to large scale works in the open air. It also includes the UK debut of the last sculptures Caro created before his death, and has been developed in collaboration with the artist’s family and studio. The showcase is grounded in two significant exhibitions, with The Hepworth Wakefield displaying Caro’s attention to scale and interest in architecture, while Yorkshire Sculpture Park will concentrate on paintings and materials.

The Caro in Yorkshire weekend break package includes both exhibitions: on Saturday you’ll experience the exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield and receive a Caro in Yorkshire goody bag worth £30 before staying in a double bedroom at the nearby at the Cedar Court Wakefield. On Sunday, after complimentary breakfast at the hotel, you’ll venture to Yorkshire Sculpture Park where you’ll have all day to explore the exhibition before enjoying a tasty afternoon tea for two in the restaurant.
