Hello everyone. We are very pleased to announce that 

the spring exhibition is going ahead at the new venue Grove Street Methodist Chapel, 


We have been able to take the opportunity to make some modifications to our programme, particularly please be aware of the dates the exhibition will open to the public.

There are some really great advantages and very few negatives, lets hope we make this new start a success!


Submissions, we are hoping for 80 plus hanging exhibits, which would mean three average sized hanging exhibits per member, but we will have to see what the response is like, I will canvas numbers nearer the day
