Chairman of DAN Malcolm Wakeman was delighted with the success of this year’s event said:

“In access of 1000 people visited our six day exhibition to view the wonderful works that were on display. We were all delighted with the amount of interest shown by visitors and over the six days there were 77 transactions of paintings, cards and other art items. The annual DAN exhibition has become a favourite for the many visitors to the National Trust’s Hanbury Hall  and we look forward to holding the event again next year.”
