I hope you will agree that this year, we have an extraordinary range of creative talent on offer - 19 exhibitors displaying the huge diversity of the visual arts, from textile specialists to master craftspeople and from artists and printmakers to sculptors. There are so many creative people tucked away, right on our doorsteps. They are now throwing open their doors to you for the weekend.

It is so important to preserve these unique skills and support our local rural economy. If you have been thinking of acquiring original artwork or craft for your home, now is your chance. We hope that you will feel free to talk about your needs. There is something for every pocket, and you can pay in monthly instalments or even commission something specific (please note that most of our artists and designers are small, independent set-ups and do not have credit
