What a great day – despite everything the weather and Storm Alex threw at us!
We were thoroughly impressed with the 49 artists who braved the elements & seemingly enjoyed the opportunity to get the heck out of the house and be creative with other like-minded (very hardy) types. We loved seeing your resulting masterpieces and had so many members of the public say how much they enjoyed seeing you at work.
Huge thanks to our judges Antonia Black & John Noott for taking on the difficult job of deciding on winners and our wonderful band of volunteers who were out before it was light erecting gazebos in torrential rain & high wind at 7:30am.

Our 2020 Main Prizewinner:

1st Place – Ann-Louise Brenchley (Broom – Alcester)
