The fourth Caistor Art and Craft Festival proved as popular as ever with visitors coming from near and far to enjoy the exhibits on show - paintings, photos and various crafts.

“I am always surprised by the quality, subjects and mediums used by the artists entering the art exhibition from watercolours through to oils, collographs and photographs,” said event organiser Sheila Broster.

“The quality crafts and demonstrations showed tremendous attention to detail and dedication from the many crafters exhibiting.

“Many thanks go to the artists and crafters for another exceptional show of work brought to the festival this weekend.”

And no festival is complete without music and organisers were pleased to welcome a number of local musicians, who played short sessions throughout the two-day festival and gave a lively swing to the whole event.

Visitors to the festival were asked to vote for their favourite piece in the exhibition and this honour went to Ailsa Wish with her painting ‘Caistor Market Square’.
