Jubilee In Thornthwaite

Posted on Sunday, 27 May 2012 10:34PM by
"Thornthwaite Galleries have a Jubilee exhibition from 28th May until 29th June, entry free. The exhibition features jubilee themed work.
Artists  who normally soak up inspiration from the mountains and meres have turned their attention to Her Majesty. In oils, watercolours, pastels, acylics - and even glass - images associated with the Queen are being created. They will be shown in the exhibition with visitors asked to choose their favourite. The top choice will be offered to Buckingham Palace as a jubilee gift.

The Gallery is sponsoring  Thornthwaite Village Church Flower Festival and Open Gardens.
There will be a Jubilee themed Flower Festival in St Mary's Church, Thornthwaite on 2nd and 3rd June from 10am to 5pm. Entrance is free and a donation is requested to support Hospice at Home. To conclude the festival there will be "Songs of Praise" in the church from 6:30pm on the Sunday.
Also, throughout Thornthwaite on Sunday 3rd June (1:00 to 6:00), there will be 8 open gardens. In addition to admiring the varied rural gardens, you will be able to see a model steam railway, sit and relax with refreshments, view the Osprey nest through a telescope,  purchase plants and cakes or see how one of the villagers has solved the fuel problem with a water turbine driven by beck water. Entrance to all gardens is £5 in support of the work of the MS Society."
