The Ashtead U3A Art Group – Exhibition in the Ralli Room 7.30-9.30 on the 6th November 2019

The Ashtead U3A Art Group, including The Photographic Group and a Craft Group, are putting on a small Exhibition of their talents on the evening of Wednesday 6th November from 7.30-9.30 pm in The Ralli Room at the rear of the Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall. In the past, we have been able to secure The Leatherhead Theatre for our previous 3 successful Exhibitions, but in this age of austerity and the lack of Arts Funding for the Theatre, it is now too expensive to continue with this venue.

We are all aware it is a shame to hide any of our ‘U3A talents’, whatever the subject, under a bushel, thus the chance to display our paintings, photos and craft work. The entrance will be free of charge and we will provide delicious canapes, and wine/soft drinks will be available during the evening. No exhibition is a success unless we invite our families, friends and U3A guests so we hope you make a note in your diaries to come along and enjoy a simple evening. Some of the art works will be For Sale which maybe ideal for Christmas presents or for grandchildren.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
