“The East Anglian Show” – Sat. 17th November
Exciting exhibits are now starting to arrive for our annual display of antiques from around Suffolk and Norfolk.
Norwich School and Suffolk artists, 18th Century Lowestoft porcelain, clocks, barometers and furniture all featuring.
The preview day will start at 10am on 17th November and will then run during normal opening hours for one Month afterwards.
There are some truly rare items which are seldomly seen outside of Museums and will be available to purchase.
Friday 16th November – Evening Talk 7pm-8.30pm
On the previous evening before the show we will be holding an evening talk on how artists sketched and prepared works before attempting a larger work in oil and how they travelled to gain their inspiration for new compositions.
This event is free including complimentary refreshments but please email or call to reserve your seat and whilst the event is free we will be asking for donations to a very worthwhile charity which this Year is www.openchristmasgreatyarmouth.org which provides a Christmas day for those in need.
