Planning is well underway as we prepare for our 22nd festival which once again is certain to show the very best in art, craft and photography. As regulars will know each year we strive to ensure the event develops offering something special to experience, entertain and enjoy. This year is no different as we welcome over 250 hand picked participants. To download a copy of this year's festival leaflet, please click here.

Exhibitions at Patchings this month. In the Barn Gallery we welcome a prestigious and award winning artist John Sprakes ROI, RBA, MAFA for an exhibition of his work called A Visual Journey Along Hadrian's Wall. John's work is a visual response to the dramatic and ancient landscape of that part of the country. As part of our Meet the Artist programme John will be working in the gallery on Sunday 3 and 17 May.
The exhibition in the Pavilion is hosted by the Nottingham Flickr Group. Connected 2015: Visions includes work submitted from talented and passionate amateur and professional photographers from across the country. Please note the Pavilion Gallery is open daily from 10am to 4pm.
A Stitch in Time in the Crew Yard Gallery continues until 17 May. Three textile artists use the media in very individual ways, all creating a variety of collectable and decorative work, where colour and texture are the main features.
In the Image Gallery, Pete Bridgwood and Jonathan Horrocks combine their talents with an exhibition called 'Britain'. The exhibition celebrates our incredible country in all her guises. A real celebration of some wonderful scenery captured by two outstanding landscape photographers.
