The Alderton Art Festival will be host to 200 paintings by around 60 artists from the south Northants area this weekend.

The annual festival is set in the picturesque St Margaret’s Church and all proceeds go to the church fabric fund.

Maureen Patton from the organising committee said: “The art is quite amazing really and there is a wide range of prices so you could spend anything from £20 to £2,000.

“But the festival is also becoming well known for the White Elephant stall and people queue to get in. It’s just a huge marquee full of bits and pieces people have donated, anything from toys to interesting fabrics, so there really is something for everyone.”

There is also a refreshments area serving coffee, lunch and afternoon teas, a home produce stall, craft stalls including jewellery and word turning, tombola, and some fun games for children.

The festival takes place between 10.30am and 5pm on Saturday, September 2, and between 10.30am and 4pm on Sunday. September 3, and entry is £1.
