2016 Annual Exhibition Dates

We have now received final notification from the Mall Galleries about a change of dates for our show next year.

In January/February 2016 extensive refurbishments are being carried out in the Main Gallery.  The ceilings are to be raised, two of the listed windows are to be exposed and air conditioning added.  We are very excited about these changes as it will streamline and update this important space and further add to the attraction of our Annual Exhibition.
