Big Draw Exhibitions...

Circles of Light (The Big Draw in Fylde) 2012 Exhibitions

2,012 drawings made by residents and visitors to Fylde over the summer will be displayed as two artist's interventions in October. 
One in Kirkham Memorial Park and one in Lowther Gardens, Lytham.

Come along and see the amazing work made as it takes the form of spectators where you, the viewer will become a participant. These feel good exhibitions will use the site to add context to how the pieces are understood.

Visitors will be able to add to the exhibitions through drop-in activities which will take place alongside the work.

FREE - for all ages and abilities - wheelchair friendly

Kirkham Memorial Gardens:  11 am - 4pm,  Sat & Sun, 20 & 21 October  map

17th LSA Cubs - thank you!

17th LSA Cubs & Leaders

 Thank you for all your bright and colourful drawings. 
You took the idea and made it your own - perfect!
There's something about a scout hut and a cub pack that seems to defy all physics.  How can so few individuals make so much noise?  However, one word from Akela and you can hear a pin drop...
A fantastic, exuberant evening - thank you everyone.

The three days of the St Annes Music & Arts Festival have been wonderful

A big thank you to everyone who came along today. 

The three days of the St Annes Music & Arts Festival have been wonderful.  We've had the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people, some on holiday and many local residents, some came especially to see us and some were accosted on the pavement and roped in.  Our oldest participant was 88 and our youngest (with the help of mum) was a few months old. 

All your drawings are beautiful and I promise they will be on the blog soon. 

Also, a big thank you to Cllr Barbara Mackenzie for taking on the task of bringing the three days of activity together.  All the time put into making the Music and Arts Festival happen and indeed the other work undertaken by town councillors is voluntary.  Barbara, your time, commitment and extraordinary energy is appreciated - thank you from all the Circles of Light team.

... and maybe the RNLI in the afternoon for the concert.

Thank you to everyone who joined us today. 

Apologies for not having any images uploaded for you to see.  Technology has got the better of me once again.  They will be put on the blog, hopefully this will happen sooner rather than later.

Tomorrow is the last day of the festival.  There's still lots to see, hear and experience.  Why not make a day of it?
Craft & art in the morning including a visit to Circles of Light in Garden Street of course and maybe the RNLI in the afternoon for the concert?  If the weather is as beautiful as it has been today you will definately "like to be beside the seaside"!

St Annes Music & Arts Festival - Friday

Thank you to everyone who came along to the shop today. 
It proved to be a magical, mystical day with Reiki Healers, a surprise reunion and Audrey who read tea leaves.  Fab - we couldn't have made it up!
