Party to mark THG garden anniversary in Honiton
PUBLISHED: 17:00 06 May 2017
The Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) will be celebrating the first year of its community 'Wild Art' garden with a garden party this May.
Following on from THG’s hugely-popular Hallowe’en party last October, the fun-packed evening will feature art activities, face painting and music all the way from the USA.
Locally-sourced food, including wood-fired pizzas, crêpes and gourmet burgers, will be available and a bar.
It will feature the popular bluegrass duo The Lowest Pair from Minneapolis after they added the garden party to their UK tour.
This family-friendly event is part of the national Museums at Night festival (May 17-20).
The gallery’s exhibition Blooming Marvellous, featuring a spectacular life-size knitted garden will also be opening late for the party.
Angela Blackwell, THG curator, said: “This is going to be another great event for Honiton!
“Our last Hallowe’en party won ‘Best Family Event’ in the Family Arts Festival awards.
“Join us to take part in a workshop to make your own willow bird feeders or some colourful, woolly pompoms!”
The party will take place on Friday, May 19, from 5pm to 9pm with art activities until 8pm.
