About the Art Show

Last year we reported our best ever show, and we had no idea how this years would go. However I’m delighted to report we managed to exceed last years profit - what a fantastic result! We welcomed 101 artists to exhibit 252 main pieces of work/ paintings to be hung, and 154 items unframed to go in the browsers. Sales were good, but the sales of refreshments were amazing - so much so we had to put out a call to the village WhatsApp for more cakes on the Saturday night.

History of the Art Show

Upper Broughton 40th Art Show A history of the Art Show by Michael Copley. In 1983 Upper Broughton Parish Council decided to purchase the Village Hall from the Church. It was in the most appalling condition and Parish Councillor George Harris agreed to form a Village Hall Committee to come up with ideas for raising money to try and improve the Hall. Chris Reeves suggested an exhibition of work by local artists might be a good fund-raising event.

Great reviews
