The plan is to be informal and friendly, with some 160 artists, galleries, established favourites and emerging stars, both national and European. The media and the styles are diverse –something for all –from glass to sculpture to photography, from textural abstract to realism, from fields of flowers to architectural constructs, from the extraordinary to the ordinary. As well as the art there is an interactive art space, live art demos and creative workshops, and the feelgood factor with some £60,000 raised to date supporting The Prince’s Trust.
