Arts In The Yard

B26 Community

Yardley Arts ForumArts In The Yard 2 Hello all,

Thank you to those that made it to our November meeting.  We have decided to meet up in December but wanted to have less off a formal meeting and more of a Christmas get together.  Please join us on Thursday 4 December from 5.15-6.45pm at South Yardley Library. Ikon will be leading us in a Christmas card painting activity, there will be mince pies and hot drinks, a chance to give your thoughts on plans for arts activities across the district in 2015 and we might even find someone to play some carols to sing along to on the piano!
Everyone is welcome: whether you are a regular arts forum attendee or just fancy hearing more about what we do.  We are always keen to meet local artists, willing volunteers and other community groups we can partner with.
Many thanks
Nicola Toms – Forum Coordinator
