7.00pm Festival Exhibition Opening (and Blind Auction launch)
We like to begin the Adventfest weekend with a launch of our community artwork exhibition. This year’s open exhibition is of works on the theme – In the falling dark. The works will be auctioned during Advent in support of our 2018 charity, Cyrenians -who will join us on the night to tell us something of their work.
During the exhibition visitors can offer for any of the artworks by putting a bid into a sealed box. The box will be opened at the close of the exhibition (1pm on Sunday 16th December) and successful bidders will be notified (in plenty of time for Christmas). Come and have a glass of wine and get in an early bid for your favourite artwork. FREE EVENT.
This year we’re supporting:
