Leigh Art Show is a showcase for local talent for both professional and amatuer artists. We encourage artists in the fields of painting, ceramics, printing, drawing and sculpture to exhibit and to sell their works in Leigh Village Hall. Lunches and teas will be provided.

There will be an opportunity to have your portrait done in pastels by well-known portrait artist James Meiklejohn. A workshop for children on Sunday from 10.00am to 12.00noon will be an exciting opportunity for children to create their own multimedia images. Please book these in advance - contact below.

Volunteers for helping at the show are needed - please contact Rachel if you are willing to help out for a couple of hours.
