Long Gallery exhibition at Hanbury Hall is opening soon

Hanbury Exhibition in the Long Gallery – 10th October to 3rd November.

There really will be lots for you to do and see! Throughout the exhibition we have painting, spinning, weaving, knitting, embroidering and performing on a variety of musical instruments. A group of poets, led by the former Poet Laureate for Worcestershire, Nina Lewis, will be visiting in order to create new works inspired by the exhibition. You can also vote for your favourite artwork. From past experience, I can tell you that it is always a lovely atmosphere and great to discuss the works with visitors.

Exhibition is open daily in the Long Gallery, 10am – 5pm.

Normal admission charges apply. Free to National Trust members.

Bring your art in for the Hanbury Hall 2018 exhibition

Hanbury Hall, the National Trust property near Droitwich Spa, opens its Long Gallery doors for another Droitwich Arts Network exhibition. With a success of previous years, this is the most popular exhibition in the year and both artists and visitors. It seems to be the pinnacle of DAN’s artistic year.

‘Behind the Scenes’ tour at Norbury Theatre

On Tuesday 11th September our DAN Meeting took the form of a ‘Behind the Scenes Tour’ of the Norbury Theatre. Around 20 of our members attended and what a fantastic evening it was!

After a short introduction with a brief history of the building itself, we were divided into three groups and each took a different route around the theatre, getting to see all areas of the building and sometimes looking in on rehearsals. The tour took us to the basement, a room filled to the brim with all sorts of props for every occasion! We also looked at the costume department, rooms upon rooms full of every conceivable item – there was even a whole room dedicated just to hats! We could have spent hours looking through all the scenery, clothes, furniture and other props.
