All exhibits are for sale and awards presented in a number of categories, which are independently judged.

New this year, will be display boards which will allow browsers to view paintings to greater effect.

The preview evening this year is sponsored by Bentons and takes place at 7.30pm on Friday. It gives visitors a chance to meet and chat to many of the exhibitors. During the evening guests can enjoy magnificent canapes and a glass of wine. At a ticket price of only £5 this is excellent value.

The main show is held on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm. Delicious homemade soups, pastries and cakes along with freshly made coffee/tea will be available throughout each day.

Admission is free and the event aims to raise funds for the village hall.
