Next Exhibition

29 - 30 October 2022


Following the suggestion of exhibitors, we are increasing the space for craft items and making the Art and Craft Fair an aunnual event. It will again be held at the Leighton Park School Oakview centre, a great venue with free parking facilities and a large exhibition area with good natural light and free parking.

In 2022 the money raised will go to FEEDING COMMUNITIES  (Website) and other charities supported by Rotary. Our previous 10 exhibitions have been a great success, raising over £50,000 for charitable causes. See a video clip about FEEDING COMMUNITIES.

We are part of the Reading Cultural Partnership and hope to have the support of Reading Borough Council to maintain this exhibition as one of the Thames Valley's premier art exhibitions for both professional and amateur artists.

The Inner Wheel Club of Reading Maiden Erlegh will manage the ever-popular Art Café so you can look forward to some first-class home-made cakes to go with your tea and coffee.

We are also delighted that the Reading Guild of Artists is continuing to support us and hope to attract more visitors, sell more artworks and raise a greater sum to donate to local good causes.

There are prize certificates and commendations to be won by exhibitors whose work catches the eye of our expert judging panel. Whether you are an artist or a visitor, we look forward to seeing you in October 2022.
