A retrospective exhibition of nostalgia celebrating the life and work of Percy French (1854-1920). The largest collection of Percy French watercolours ever exhibited will be open to the public from Friday 1st April and will continue until Sunday 1st  May 2011. A select number of works will also be available for sale.

Opening hours:

Mon – Friday 10:00am to 5.30pm

Saturday 11:00 – 4:00pm

An exhibition not to miss! While many outside the Art collecting world will only know of Percy French for his humourous song writing, his reputation as a watercolourist is gaining in stature with every passing year. His paintings continue to turn up at auction quite often with prices still in the affordable bracket and their value is sure to appreciate – unlike bank shares! “The Grand Canal (above) was painted in 1896 but sadly is only on loan to the exhibition.
