VISITORS to a fundraising art show are in for a treat with demonstrations from two top artists.

The stunning Regency ballroom of The Elms, in Old Bedhampton, will host the annual Manor Trust show this weekend.

The trust cares for retired people in three large former private houses in the area which were saved from developers in the 1960s.

On Saturday, Jeannie Brown will give a floral art demonstration and on Sunday Bob Payne will explain how he creates stunning landscape paintings. Both are at 3pm.

All the art works are original and a portion of each sale goes to the Manor Trust.

There will also be home made cakes and cream teas available for £2.50.

The event, in Lower Road, is 10am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is £1.
