The 10th Mentmore Arts Festival will be held from Saturday 26th to Monday 28th May 2018 from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm.
We are delighted that our favourite artists continue to support the event and are also very happy to make new artists a welcome addition to the team. We now showcase the work of over 60 contributors, twice the number from our opening year. This, together with record numbers of visitors, has meant that we have been able to donate to charity the fantastic sum of £9,000 in 2016 and over £50,000 in total from eight events. We are awaiting figures for 2017.
The lead charity for 2017 was our local Air Ambulance. We also supported Young Carers Bucks, the church and the village hall.
We are currently deciding on the charity for 2018. The weekend is an opportunity to have a family day out with our refreshment tent offering light lunches, teas, coffee and a fantastic bar selling Pimms and local beer. We also have a raffle with some great prizes.
Many thanks to all those who make this such a popular event, including our exhibitors, all our visitors (some from as far afield as Wales!) and everyone who supports the Committee over the weekend.
