The Art & Craft Exhibition 2024

The Whitchurch Society are very pleased to be holding this popular annual event again, in the Whitchurch Village Hall on Manor Road, on the weekend of 23rd & 24th November 2024.

This is a ‘live’ format exhibition which is open for all current residents and ex-residents of Whitchurch-on-Thames, Whitchurch Hill and Goring Heath to enter. Plus, children at local schools too. We welcome visitors from Pangbourne and surrounding areas to come and view the work of our very talented community, but we unfortunately can’t accept entries from a wider network.

There are various categories to enter – something for everyone! Our fabulous judges will be awarding cups for best exhibit in Art, in Craft, in Photography and for New Media (Film & Animation). There is also recognition for best first-time adult exhibitor and junior winners in four age groups too.

This year’s theme for the special Joyce Voysey prize is ‘Colours of Autumn’. You are encouraged to start thinking about how you might produce a piece of art, craft or a photo which interprets this very topical subject – but please remember that your entries for all the other classes can be on any subject whatsoever.

Save the date in your diaries and get busy now… with your brushes, paints, camera, needles, glue, varnish, stamps, inks, wool, chisels, pliers, cottons, clay, pens, paper, lovely ideas…

We will be hosting an Art Café in The Old Stables on Saturday 12th October 2024 to raise funds for this exhibition. We would love you to join us for a cuppa and piece of cake.

The full list of last year's 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.

All the information about how and when to enter will be posted here by the end of September but meanwhile for more information, please contact Sally Woolhouse at
