LET’S GO ON A BEAR HUNT
There will be a special trail for the youngsters with a variety of Bears hiding in some of the shop windows.  A trail sheet can be collected from the Town Hall, from Tuesday 21st February, see how many you can find and write their names on the trail sheet. 

STAINED GLASS ELEPHANT PROJECT
As part of the Arts Festival, a project is underway to make a stained glass elephant, to be later included in ‘The March of the Elephants’ town trail. Designed by Helen Robinson, stained glass artist in Bishops Castle, the window is being painted by members of the community, depicting aspects of life in the town. Started in 2020 then delayed by lockdown, the project is now going ahead and the work so far can be viewed during the Arts Festival Open Studios at the Oriel Glass Studio in The Old Vicarage. (See programme for opening times).
There are still a few parts to be painted and during the Festival you will be able to book a place to attend one of the workshops to be held in early March.
It is hoped that the finished work will be unveiled in the Town Hall as part of the ‘Charter Day’ celebrations in July.
