Judging of Entries

At the Preview evening event the judges will announce the top three entries and will also commend other entries at their discretion.


Large banners will be displayed outside Leighton Park School promoting the event to thousands of motorists and pedestrians. We will also promote the Art Fair to our extensive network of other service clubs in the Thames Valley. In addition, we will be using various graphic display promotions, social media and other Internet publicity.

As in the past, we expect to have press coverage and advertising and to feature on local radio. This year we will be extending the cover on social media.
