Works of art in various forms are being taken to the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural Society (RJA&HS) over the coming weeks ahead of the opening of this year’s Jersey Eisteddfod Deutsche Bank Festival of Creative Arts.
The Festival, which provides a showcase for the island’s creative talent, opens to the public on Thursday 17th March, opening daily from 10am until 6pm, and closing on Sunday 20th March at 4pm.
Yet again, the Festival will feature a wide variety of creative art forms, including photography, floral arrangements, adult and school art and craft, textiles and needlework. All of the items on display are due to be adjudicated by an experienced panel of external examiners and teachers, who are renowned in their field, ahead of the opening of the Festival.
General Administrator of the Jersey Eisteddfod, Christine Hamon, commented: “The Jersey Eisteddfod, with the help of its sponsors the Jersey Arts Trust and Deutsche Bank, remains committed to providing exhibitors with best possible venue. The RJA & HS in Trinity is such a fantastic venue full of space and light that will provide the perfect environment to view the work of our local creative talent.”
There will be plenty of parking at the venue, which is also wheelchair friendly, whilst refreshments will also be available.
