A tired old telephone box will be transformed for an arts festival.

Red telephone boxes are an important part of British heritage and the organisers behind the Cheddar Arts Fringe Festival (CHAFF) will give one a new lease of life.

Supported by Cheddar Parish Council, artists will work to save the unused box on Tweentown opposite the Catholic church and turn it into a mini art gallery.

Each month there will be a different artist, craftsman, club, school or individual exhibiting their work for people to view at their leisure.

To launch it this year, it will be taken over by ARTXTRA After School Arts Clubs, based at Arthouse Cheddar in Union Street.

The fourth annual festival will start on Saturday and will run from 10am-4pm until bank holiday Monday.
