The best and brightest exhibition of amateur art on the North Norfolk Coast will take place from Friday 15th August to Tuesday 26th August. The exhibition has been going for years and gets bigger and better every year. It is now held in the Masonic Hall on Cromer Road, Sheringham, opposite the Station Car Park and close to the roundabout at the bottom of Holway Road as you enter Sheringham. Also very convenient for the train station and bus stops.
The exhibition is open daily from 10.30 am to 5.30 pm, except on the last day when it closes at noon. This is when the raffle prize of a superb Angela Wells painting will be drawn (tickets on sale throughout the exhibition).
Thanks to financial assistance from Sheringham Town Council the roof of the lifeboat shed was renewed in time for opening over the school Easter holidays, and with the usual helpful assistance of the Combined Cadet Force at Gresham’s School, all was made clean, shipshape and Bristol fashion in the HRU shed.
With much better weather over Easter than was experienced last year, we got off to a good start with over 1,000 visitors. Visitor numbers have stayed high, and we are grateful to those visitors who make a voluntary donation (the money we need to cover our costs has to come from somewhere). We will be open at our advertised times (see the Opening Times page) until the end of September, weather and availability of volunteers permitting.
Our Social Secretary, Maureen Cooper, has provided a varied and lively series of talks for our regular coffee mornings and organised trips for members and friends, to Gressenhall, How Hill. She is currently planning a trip to the Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival in September (see Events).
The annual Art Exhibition will again take place in the Masonic Hall on Cromer Road from 15th to 26th August, with even more artists exhibiting than before. For opening times see the Events page.
As usual, especially in the Fishermen’s Heritage Centre, we need people to come forward to replace volunteer stewards who are no longer able to continue with their vital and enjoyable work. Please contact us if you live in or near Sheringham and are able to help (see Contact Us).
The Sheringham Society is a thriving group and we always welcome new members (see Join Us).
