Mentmore Arts Festival Press Release 2020
The 12th Mentmore Arts Festival will be held from Saturday 23rd to Monday 25th May 2020 from 11am to 5 pm.
Once again we have a fantastic variety of artists exhibiting, including people who have supported us in previous years alongside new artists who we look forward to meeting. The number of artists attending has more than doubled since the first festival. Every year we choose different charities that we would like to support and, over the course of the previous 11 festivals, we have donated over £84,000 to those charities. In 2019 we donated £11,000 to our chosen charities. Our lead charity , Keech Hospice Care, received £4500, Riding for the Disabled received £2000 and Nest Aylesbury Vale received £2000. We also donated £2500 to St Mary’s Church in Mentmore. In 2020 we plan to support Leukaemia UK and WheelPower as well as the church. The festival provides an opportunity for a family day out with refreshments available including light lunches, teas,coffee and cake and a bar selling Pimms and local beer. There is always a raffle with some great prizes.
Many thanks,once again, to all our exhibitors, visitors and everyone who contributes towards making this a really popular and successful event.
