Art show at John Peel Centre

Stowmarket Lions Club are holding its first art show at the recently completed John Peel Centre for the Creative Arts over the weekend.

More than 80 artists from all over the county will display their work from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is £1 and refreshments will be available - all proceeds from the art show will be split equally between the John Peel Centre and Stowmarket Lions local charities.

Stowmarket Lions Club President Keith Copper said: “They have had one or bands play at the venue so far but this is the first art show to be put on.

“It’s in a nice handy location in the town centre and we’ll haver a man with a sandwich board directing people in.

“We are hoping to get a couple of thousand people through the doors - it shows there is more to the centre than just music.
