One Last Hurrah - Art Fair at Uckfield Festival times confirmed

Plans are underway to once again stage a big art exhibition in the town's Civic Centre as part of the 2022 Uckfield Festival.

The times for the event are confirmed as:

Friday 1st July - 6pm to 9pm

Saturday 2nd July - 9am to 4:30pm

Founded by Tim Benians in 2006, initially as an Art Trail with around 60 artists dotted around the area in 25 venues, it then also had workshops and activities for all the family. This evolved over subsequent years, eventually bringing everyone under one big roof within the Civic Centre. The name changed to Bridge Arts in Uckfield and the last big event was in June 2018.

Having recently retired Tim obviously has too much time on his hands, as he says "I'd like to pick up the reins again for one Last Hurrah; to stage a simple Art Fair showcasing the best local art and craft we can assemble, and then ensure we have a huge number of visitors!"

The Civic Centre has been booked for this comeback exhibition on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd July, the first weekend of the Festival weekend. Tim is currently gathering the names of artists and makers, so if you'd like to be part of this exhibition email him on timbenians@gmail.com
