What's on

Arts at the Folly – 18th May

Event details

An annual event taking place in the beautiful village of Lea, nestled on the hillside above Matlock.  Arts at The Folly takes place at the home of Frances Daunt, animal artist, who turns the ground floor into an amazing art gallery for 3 days.  A wealth of artwork is displayed over a period of 3 days, 17-19th May from 10am to 4pm with free entry.  All work is available to purchase and commissions are welcome.  Definitely an event to place in the diary

Refreshments are free of charge (although a donation box is provided on behalf of Mid Derbyshire Badger Group!)

Frances is  joined by 5 other talented local artists who will be there in person to chat about their work.
