Abbey Dore Week – Exhibition 23rd – 29th July 2017

A feast of visual art complements the musical activities of the week, providing an array of unique, wide ranging and varied styles of artworks.

The multi-media exhibition takes place in the South Aisle and turns the whole event into a mini Arts Festival.

The exhibition will be open daily between 9.30 am and 6.15 pm and admission is free.

We are looking forward to welcoming The Herefordshire Guild of Craftsmen this July in Abbey Dore. Members of the Guild will be putting on a multi-media exhibition in the South Aisle, making a really wonderful contribution to our Arts Festival week.
