An annual open art exhibition which included 232 exhibits and attracted hundreds of visitors has been hailed a big success by organisers.

The Upper Broughton Art Show, now in its 33rd year, managed to raise over £2,000 for village hall funds and there was around an 18 per cent increase on the exhibits on display.

Artists, sculptors and woodcarvers from around the region attended the three day exhibition which started on Friday (October 9) with a preview evening.

Anne Copley, one of the organisers, said: “This was another fantastic year packed out all the time with visitors from all over the borough.

“The preview evening was most successful and was sponsored by Catchpole Cellars.

“After 33 years it never seems to lose its appeal for artists and browsers alike.

“Without a doubt everyone had a super time and the exhibition was another wonderful success. Over 50 exhibits were sold at the event.”

Homemade soups, pastries and cakes, along with freshly made coffee and tea were served each day.

Winner of the 3D Cup for his stone sculpture, John Nicholls, added: “Thanks and congratulations must go to the organisers for putting on another superb show.”
