AN exhibition of Cracking Christmas Art comes to Middlewich in November.

The event, run by Phil Bower of Northwich Art Shop, will see an exhibition of mid Cheshire art as part of a fair.

The Cracking Christmas Art Fair runs from 10.30am until 4.30pm at Middlewich Victoria Hall on Sunday, November 17.

Entry is free, with more than 20 exhibitors showcasing their work – including Douglas Hutton, Laura Gibbons, Jim Stanley, Lynne Connolly and Ian Hill-Smith.

Their styles range from watercolour and oil paintings to cartoons, books, postcards and more.

Free art demonstrations will also be running throughout the day.

On the day, mince pies from Williamson’s of Castle will be available to buy, along with mulled wine and a non-alcoholic alternative.

The festive treats will help raise funds for the Middlewich Foodbank.
