Artists Raise £800 For Museum – This Is Somerset

A group of local artists has raised more than £800 for Radstock Museum.

The Old Bakery Artists raised the money during their autumn exhibition, which was held at the museum.

They presented a cheque to the Radstock, Midsomer Norton and District Museum Society at their Christmas party.

The cheque was accepted on behalf of the society by its president, Dr Charles Chillcott.

Also present were Richard Maggs, chairman of Radstock Museum, Nigel Carter, manager and curator of the museum, and David Jones, chairman of the Friends of the Museum Society.

Dr Chillcott expressed his pleasure at visiting the museum during the group’s autumn exhibition.

During November, the artists transformed the museum’s upper gallery with colourful paintings, photographs and ceramics, inspired by Radstock and Midsomer Norton and beyond.

And the group is looking forward to collaborating with Radstock Museum again in the future.
