Thatcham Festival Art Exhibition

Thatcham Festival Art Exhibition was once again hosted by Thatcham Art Experience in the Old Bluecoat School.  With its original chapel structure and high ceiling, the building creates a perfect atmosphere to showcase the very impressive work of local artists, most of whom are high-level amateurs although several professionals also had work on display.
Artists were frequently on site to talk to the visitors and several commissions were taken.  The Exhibition was enjoyed by more than a hundred visitors over the weekend of 13th and 14th October,2018.
