Artists form all over the Country will be flocking to Congleton next Sunday (18th December) to put on the Creativedge Art, Craft and Sculpture Show in the Town Hall in aid of the Town Mayor’s Charities.
The organiser artist Glyn Matthews is a personal friend of Congleton Town Mayor, Cllr David Martin and vowed to put on a show that was ‘the best for 25 years within a 25 mile radius’. Mr Matthews has persuaded 30 top British designers and craftsmen to make the journey to Congleton to enable people to view, purchase or commission their work.
Mr Matthews said: “Cllr David Martin has always supported the arts, and when he told me he was going to be Mayor, I offered to put on a really special show for the town using my contacts. I believe I have succeeded in my aspiration of producing the best show for 25 years – but ultimately the public will decide!”
There will be gifts available to suit all tastes and budgets – with prices ranging from £3 to £3000! The Creativedge Show will be open from 11.00am – 4.30pm. Admission is £2 (£1 concessions) and as well as viweing fabulous art visitors can expect entertainment, a visit from Santa and wine tasting. The Town Hall bar and DeLacey’s Cafe and Tapas Bar will be open.
Town Mayor Cllr Dave Martin said: “I feel incredibly honoured that these artists are travelling to Congleton to help raise funds for my charities. It will be a tremendous show – the likes of which we haven’t seen for many years – and I really hope the local people will turn out and enjoy the experience.”
