Winter Closing 2018-2019


Art Exhibition and Sale

Between 21 November and 16 December 2018 we are hosting a display of the work of local people who create art for a hobby rather than a living. As always admission is free with the works on display available for purchase. There is also a raffle to raise funds for the Calne Heritage Centre, with the winner receiving the framed and mounted squirrel shown below, which has been very kindly donated by Diane Haines. Here's a preview of just some of the many items to view at the exhibition. We hope to see you soon!
