We believe that every child deserves a happy and joyful childhood – which is how this exhibition came about.
We are raising money for children in need, and also celebrating all that should be joyous about one’s childhood.

We warmly invite you to come and experience our artist’s depictions of their childhood – from the simple pleasures of a marble run and fishing on the wharf, to the enchantment of pretending to fly.

This exhibition is to raise funds for War Child, with donations being made from every piece of work sold in the exhibition. This will contribute to their relief work in providing aid and support to children who are and have been affected by wars. To find out more about War Child, visit their website at https://www.warchild.org.uk/about

Come along and celebrate all that is and should be joyful about childhood with us. Then together we can help encourage others to see that this should be the standard for all children.

Some of the artists featuring in this exhibition include:
Christian Nicolson, Merle Bishop, Rosemary Eagles, Bill Hayes, Zoe Feng, David Jones, Graham Downs,
Paul Hooker, Karen Kennedy, Steve Molloy, Anna Korver, Kay Bazzard, Craig Platt, Brenda Nyhof, Alison Hale,
