CANCELLED — 38th Upper Broughton Art Show October 2020

This site supports the activities of the Art Show held each year in October in aid of Village Hall funds.

Art Show 2020

It is with great regret we have to announce the cancellation of the October 2020 Upper Broughton Art Show due to the continued Covid-19 situation.

This October's event would have seen the 38th running of the show. The Upper Broughton Art Show is the key fund raising event for the continued upkeep and running of the Village Hall.

Over the years the Art Show has built an enviable reputation as one of the key shows, both from an exhibitors point of view but also as a destination to view, browse and buy art, with the added attraction of scrummy cakes and refreshments.

All of this couldn't continue without a valued band of loyal volunteers who meet, plan, work, organise, hang, cook, serve, promote and account all behind the scenes. All of us connected with the Upper Broughton Art Show wish to thanks all the artists, for their continued support along with everyone who visits the show, some of whom have hardly missed any of the 37 previous years.

Hopefully, we can all be back for the 2021 show? With any luck next year will see a bumper exhibition showing how we all spent 2020 'the Covid days'.

we are introducing a new section on the web site Look what I got…

In the mean time we are introducing a new section on the web site Look what I got… (see tab above). Where we are inviting anyone who purchased a picture, sculpture, artwork from the show to submit a photo of their purchase, preferably with them next to the art work and a few lines telling us why, when, how they came to buy the work, what it means to them or any interesting thoughts on the artwork. We've kicked things off with a couple from the committee.

Everyone connected with the Upper Broughton Art Show hopes that you are all able to keep safe and well during these unusual times and we look forward to hopefully inviting everyone back to a 2021 show.


Our Annual Exhibition attracts a wide range of artists from the Midlands and beyond…

Below is a quote from one of the artists who contacted us following the show:

Very well organised and very professional - Exhibiting artist

…I'd just like to say a word or two of appreciation for the Art Show this year.

I was exhibitions secretary for the Essex Art Club so I have a modest experience of putting art shows on.  It is a lot of work and requires people to work together in a productive way.

Upper Broughton have got it pretty well cracked.  Your systems as experienced at the artist's end is excellent - enough information without too much.  The Private View is the best I have attended as was said at the end of your show "it could be seen as cakes and refreshments with an art show attached".

You have a brilliant team to put the pictures up (not so long to take them down - but well displayed given the space available.  And clearly your publicity is outstanding.  And there are all the other odd jobs done by the unseen helpers…..all in all quite outstanding.  You even ensure the prizes are modest but greatly appreciated.
