A kaleidoscope of arts is on display in North Tuddenham this weekend as it holds a festival in the historic church of St Mary's celebrating the creative talents of local people.
On Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 4pm each day, the church on Mattishall Lane will be filled with artwork contributed by many individuals and groups using different media.
Internationally acclaimed ceramicist Ruthanne Tudball will be displaying, alongside Bridget Heriz whose glorious sculptures will include 'Great Mother', a mother and son sculpted from balsa wood and wire especially with St Mary's Church in mind.
Dereham Photographic Club will be exhibiting their members' evocative work, and four artists -
Marie Louise Bacon, Zelda Eady, Judi Graham and Jane Ironside - will all be showing their varied, beautiful works within the church. Many of the artists will have items for sale, and a percentage of these sales will also be donated to charity.
There is a 'Grand Art Raffle' of works generously donated by exhibitors, with first prize being a glorious watercolour 'Dreaming (Anemones)' given by an Avril Blanshard, a name synonymous with a style of vibrant, colourful, loose painting.
On Saturday evening the 'West End Waiters' are performing in the church. It promises to be an evening of music and laughter with their unique blend of humour, songs and monologues. Tickets on the door will be £7.50 which includes a glass of wine and nibbles.
