AN art event is set to return for a milestone anniversary after being postponed for two years.

Langford Village Hall has been unable to host the Langford and Ulting Art Exhibition for the past two years due to the Covid pandemic.

Historically, about 600 visitors flock to see the hundreds of pieces featured in the exhibition in the weekend before Easter.

The event is the main fundraising activity for the hall to help keep it running and maintained.

It was started 25 years ago by Caroline Spong, an artist herself from Ulting who handled the administration for the event for many years.

Louise Sankey, from Langford, stepped up to help alleviate the workload which she says 83-year-old Caroline "did unaided for too long".

The 53-year-old added: " I am definitely not an artist but our skills compliment one another and together we get there.

"There are then many other helpers who volunteer at the village hall to make the exhibition what it is."

She hopes to maximise the coverage of the event's grand return and 25th anniversary.

As well as increasing the profile of the event, Louise hopes it can attract new artists who might want to exhibit next year.

Louise said: "Sadly, a large proportion of our artists are getting to the age where they feel unable to paint any longer."

The exhibition returns on the weekend of Saturday, April 9.

It will run from 10am to 5pm on both days and entry costs £2.

This will include a programme and a free raffle ticket.

Children under 12 also get free admission.

There will be tea, coffee, homemade cakes and plenty of free parking available.
