Charity concert to help funding Spectrum Days

Droitwich Lions are organising a Charity Concert on Friday 9th November at Droitwich Working Mens Club at 7.00pm. The aim of the event is to help local non-profit organisation Spectrum Days, Worcestershire Young Carers and Worcestershire Carers

Spectrum Days is a small non-for-profit charity who provide people with profound disabilities and their families with specialist support within Worcestershire and the surrounding areas. The areas they currently cover are Worcester, Droitwich, Bromsgrove, Kidderminster, Pershore, Tewkesbury and Tenbury Wells.

Spectrum Days charity works with the family to support and provide each member with a unique, fun and purposeful care package which meets their needs. The experienced, well trained and fantastic staff work together to provide a fun, stimulating and safe service throughout the week from Monday to Saturday.

Spectrum Days gave a fantastic support to Droitwich Arts Network throughout the year, by giving us their rooms for various projects and presentations. 

Tickets £10 from Mike John or Carole Moseley 01905 796565. Mike is part of an excellent music group and there will be a very entertaining Black Country poet and comedian David Bartley

Droitwich Arts Network showcase at Hanbury Hall

The exhibition in the Long Gallery at Hanbury Hall near Droitwich is the most important event of the year for DAN members. This year’s exhibition will be open for three weeks and will be closed on 3rd November. The private view on 11th October was attended by artists, their family and friends, as well as supporters of local arts. The exhibition was opened by Councillor Mrs Christine Bowden, the Mayor of Droitwich Spa.

A huge response of local artists, Droitwich Arts Network members, brings together paintings and crafts in a wide range of techniques including oils, acrylics, watercolours, drawings, fibre and textiles. Displayed crafts, such as jewellery and textiles, are a new feature in DAN’s exhibitions. Hopefully, it will be opportunities to see it more in the future. Some of the artists have a range of greeting cards, prints and calendars.

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.
