Droitwich Arts Week successfully started

Droitwich Arts Week successfully started on Friday 20 May and gave us a confidence that the whole week will be packed with a good quality programme. The exhibition of Droitwich in Pictures of photographs from the past and present, personal memories of Droitwich people and old town maps is opened in The Meetbox.

Visitors are able to see the old photographs of town’s streets and remember the buildings that are demolished long time ago or changed through the time. Droitwich people are invited to bring their own photos and show them on the exhibition.


In the same venue, 2nd Mail Art exhibition is opened on Friday.
