Arts & Crafts Exhibitions in St Chad’s
Exhibitions were held in St Chad’s Church in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013. It is hoped to hold another exhibition in future.
At the exhibitions there were hundreds of paintings and a large variety of Craft Stalls, with a wide range of items for sale. Most artists exhibiting were from within a ten-mile radius of Hanmer. The Chad Cafe, run by volunteers from the village, provided tea and cakes throughout the exhibitions.
The exhibitions provided a community activity that placed the church at the centre of village life. It also was a way of raising some funds to maintain this heritage building.
