The Art & Craft  Exhibition 2023

This was a very successful exhibition, with more exhibitors and more exhibits than in many previous years. This welcome increase is no doubt because we used Facebook for the first time to reach out to a wider audience, encouraging new talent to enter for the first time. As a result, there were 14 adult exhibitors who had never taken part before.

There were 192 entries across the full spectrum of classes, in art, craft, photography and new media, from 116 exhibitors, both adult and young people. It was enjoyed by many visitors over the weekend, as were the refreshments which were served on both days.

Also, on the stage, the three local schools, namely Whitchurch Pre-School, the Whitchurch Primary School and the Oratory Preparatory School, had set up impressive and colourful displays of school work by their students.

The full list of the 2023 prize winners can be seen here.

Also, a History of the Cups & Awards that have been won since the first Exhibition was held in 1972 can be seen here.

Details of the 2024 Exhibition will be posted here when they are available.
