Fundraising Fashion Show

Droitwich ‘M & Co’ clothing shop will host fundraising fashion show on Wednesday, 14th March 2018, with an aim to raise funds for Droitwich Arts Network.  This fun and memorable event has happened for the first time in 2016 and helped DAN raise a significant amount of money that was wisely used in funding some of the biggest events in the last year, such as ArtsFest and Hanbury Hall exhibition. 

Helen Karakashian, DAN chair, announced that 110 tickets will be printed and ready for distribution in a couple of weeks. Tickets will be on sale in ‘M & Co’ (St Andrews Shopping Centre, Droitwich) and Park’s Café (4 Victoria Square, Droitwich) for the price £5. 

Soft drinks and light bites will be available, as well as the raffle. Please bring some raffle prizes with you on the evening.

Art Advent in Droitwich High Street

Opened for business again after several months of work on resurfacing, Droitwich High Street is in the holiday season mood and is, literally, counting days until Christmas. 

Droitwich Arts Network members Justine Humphreys and Karen Harmon from The Canal Side Studio have organised the Art Advent Calendar in the High Street shop windows. All artworks are simply packed and labeled, they will be unwrapped, one each day. It is great to discover all those beautiful paintings, and here are the pictures of just a few of them. 

New Bookmarks for ArtsFest 2018
