Sixteen artists will showcase their talents at an exhibition next month.

Breakaway Art Group, an eclectic mix of artists, will display their work over the first bank holiday weekend of May.

The group was formed 20 years ago and encourages its members to experiment with different medias including watercolours, pastel and pencil.

The group regularly meet at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form on Monday evenings and participate in painting weekends, workshops and local exhibitions and will now be holding one of their own.

It will run from May 5-7 from 10am-5pm and will take place at Churchill Memorial Hall, in Ladymead Lane.

There will be more than 100 examples of the artists’ paintings, sculptures and other pieces on display.

There is no entrance fee to this event and plenty of parking.

There will also be refreshments available to buy on the day.
