Amersham Town Council and the Festival Organising Committee have been delighted by the sales and the numbers of visitors in the first part of the festival.

After a bumper grand opening on Friday evening attended by Mayors and Councillors from across Bucks, we have seen over 300 people enjoy this feast of talent.

Professional artist, Denis Pannett, judged the best of the paintings on the preview evening.

The exhibition is open daily until Sunday 9th August and there are still lots of paintings and cards to purchase – see you there!
