Saturday, 9th September 2017 - Tuesday, 3rd October 2017
Association of Animal Artists
Venue: The Station
Collective works by members of the 'AAA'

A fantastically diverse exhibition of Animal Art embracing a broad spectrum of style and technique and capturing the spirit of nature.

Our animal kingdom needs to be appreciated in all its forms to encourage us to value our natural world. Through detailed studies, and an 'emotional response' to the natural world, the Association of Animal Artists have a common aim; to use their passion for art and nature to support animals through close partnership with animal welfare groups.

Displaying work from professional artists, semi professional and amateur artists from all genres, depicting domestic through to exotic animals, the breadth of styles and subjects means there truly is something for everyone.

Past visitors to our exhibitions have left with some wonderful comments:-
“Truly an exhibition not to be missed by any animal lover!”
“A fantastic exhibition. The standard of work is second to none”

With all artwork for sale, we are excited to be able to support our chosen charity for 2017, The Vincent Wildlife Trust.

Best Foot Forward
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A hilarious hike through the history of hostelling with the award-winning Mikron Theatre Company.

Something’s afoot at Pearling Manor and it isn’t just the walkers. The beautiful hostel, rich in YHA history, is lovely but falling apart. External forces are out to grab and turn it into a golf club.

Cue Connie, first ever warden, with a heart as big as her rucksack. She takes us on a journey through the YHA’s past in the hope of securing its future.

Through thickets and thin we’ve managed to keep

Our promise of somewhere cheap to sleep

If that’s threatened we must defend it

Looking to the past in order to transcend it


With harmonies, hills and humour, join Mikron on a hike through the history of hostelling.

Tickets from £8 to £21 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking system.
