Easter Art Show: Cancelled

Due to recent developments concerning the Covid-19 virus, it has been decided to cancel this years’ Easter Art Show.

Whilst this is disappointing, we do so in the best interests of the wider community and current advice.

We may organise a replacement event once this situation becomes clearer. Or maybe not.

Apologies for this but it is out of our control.

Normally, with the support of Stirling Hinchcliffe MP (Member for Sandgate), the Easter Art Show is held in the Callan Centre at St Patrick’s College, Shorncliffe.

With help from our friends at Shorncliffe Potters the Easter Art Show runs from Good Friday to Easter Saturday with opening night on the Thursday evening.

We welcome all works which are available for sale, of exhibition quality and not previously awarded.
