A CHARITY will benefit from a two-day art exhibition.

The stunning Regency ballroom of The Elms, in Old Bedhampton, will host the annual art exhibition which raises money for the Manor Trust.

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

One of major annual fundraising events is the art exhibition, normally held over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.

But this year it will take place over the weekend before the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. All the paintings, drawings, sculptures and crafts are original and for sale at reasonable prices.

A proportion of the proceeds of each sale benefits the work of The Manor Trust.

There will also be home made cakes and cream teas available for £2.50. Admission is £1.

The event, in Lower Road, is 10am to 6pm on May 26 and 10am to 6pm on May 27.
