Friday 3rd May to Monday 6th May
2019 Arts Festival
Poppy Trail Auction 15th to 29th November
Following the lovely display of 100+ poppy paintings around town – the paintings have now been moved and put on display in Ashby Library. Library opening times are as follows but we have given an indication of the best time to visit as the exhibition room is hired out to clubs and groups and not accessible at some times. To avoid disappointment we strongly recommend calling the library on 0116 305 5917 to confirm times before travelling to see the exhibition.
Monday: 10:00-17:00 best times before 2pm
Tuesday: 13:00-18:00 before 2pm of after 3.30pm
Thursday:10:00-17:00 after 1.30pm
Friday: 10:00-17:00 after 12
Saturday: 10:00-15:00 anytime
During the exhibition the paintings will be sold by Silent Auction to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal. How does that work? There will be an Auction Folder held at the Library desk with an auction sheet for each picture. On the sheet you can see what previous bidders have offered and write your own bid. Bidding will close on 29th November and pictures will be available to collect by the winning bidders from 2pm on 30th November. Full instructions will be in the folder.
