Festival of Arts at Nuneaton's Museum & Art Gallery

Published on Thursday, 30th March 2017

Festival of Arts – Craft & Needlecraft Section 8 April – 1 May 2017  Including work by both children and adults come and explore the array of different techniques and styles.

Mosaics, patchwork and embroidered items are popular features in this annual favourite. 

For anyone particularly inspired by the display - why not bring your crochet or knitting along with you and make yourself comfortable on the benches while you knit away.

We’re also hoping for lots of great entries for ‘The Museum Centenary Cup’. This new award has been launched this year to celebrate the Museum’s 100th anniversary. The cup is to be awarded to a piece of work, from across all of the categories shown at the Museum, which best reflects the centenary of the Museum – as voted for by visitors. Visit the show to have your say and support the work you think most deserves a chance to win. 

For other prizes, entries will be judged by adjudicators from the Warwickshire Federation of Women’s Institutes and local tutors and teachers of craft subjects.

Remember, as with all our shows, admission is FREE and there are also our other displays to enjoy throughout the building.

In addition to our events, activities and permanent displays there is still chance to see

  • The Man Behind The Museum – on show until 14 May and
  • ‘The BFG in Pictures’, which is a touring exhibition from House of Illustration, on show until 4 June.
