Upper Broughton Art Show Is A Huge Success

October 31st 2011
By: Jonathan

Intercounty were proud sponsors of the 29th Annual Upper Broughton Art Show this year. The exhibition was a huge success and broke all previous records.  The ever-increasing popularity of this exhibition never ceases to amaze the organisers.

Mark Bygott of Intercounty Estate Agents produced a set of roadside display boards, which helped to draw in the crowds.

There were over 240 paintings, sculptures, wood carvings, pottery, and glass on show, which the organisers stated was a record. 51 items were sold and an amazing profit of £2200 was achieved, which will go towards the ongoing upkeep of the village hall.

Refreshments throughout the weekend were made by excellent cooks from Upper Broughton.

For your chance to see all the winners and photographs from the event please visit their website @ www.upperbroughtonartshow.org.uk

The Public Choice trophy went to “Heathland Hobby” by J Lyes.

The raffle prizes were all won by residents of Upper Broughton.

1st Prize Hamper of home made preserves and produce.  Christine Wilson
2nd Prize Long Clawson Ring of Stilton.  Moya Hill.
3rd Prize Orchid.  Rhydain Wynn-Williams
