Friends of the Ridgeway Friends Day
The date for the Friends of the Ridgeway Friends Day including the prize giving for the Swire Ridgeway Arts Prize will be on Sunday 23 April 2017 at Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall, Uffington (Broad Street, Uffington, Oxfordshire, SN7 7RA), located in the centre of the beautiful and historic rural village of Uffington in the Vale of the White Horse.
As far as possible, all works submitted for the Swire Ridgeway Arts Prize will be exhibited as part of the Ridgeway Friends Day, subject to availability of space and to the Friends of the Ridgeway discretion. The exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday 22 April and Sunday 23 April 2017 from 10:00am to 5:00pm in the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall, Uffington (Broad Street, Uffington, Oxfordshire, SN7 7RA). The results of the competition will be announced and prizes awarded at the Ridgeway Friends Day.
The first entry for the Swire Ridgeway Arts prize was received on Monday 23 January 2017 well ahead of the submission deadline of 27 February 2017. This was followed by a second entry on Wednesday 25 January 2017. The first entry is a painting, a composition of several Ridgeway scenes and locations, and the second two poems. Let’s hope these early entries are indicative of many to follow.
