Affordable Art Under £100.00 Raising Money for the Babygrow Appeal
CAF100 – Supporting Chester’s Babygrow Appeal
This month we are delighted to officially announce that The Countess Charity and the Babygrow Appeal are the Fair’s nominated charity partner for 2017. Local to the area, it is a delight to be working with the charity and raising money for the development of a new Neonatal Unit at the Countess, to provide better services and facilities for patients and their families.
As part of our efforts to raise awareness and money for the charity at Chester Arts Fair this November, we have launched the CAF100 Appeal. Exhibitors of the Fair this year have donated 100 pieces of art and will be sold for £100.00 or less based on a first come first served basis throughout the weekend. Artwork includes original paintings, illustrations, watercolours, ceramics and more. Below is just a small sample, view the collection online and keep an eye on it as we add more and more each week in the lead up to CAF17.
Afternoon Tea @ The Chester Grosvenor
As it’s Afternoon Tea Week, it would be rude not to point you in the direction of the The Chester Grosvenor, where they have been serving the country’s favourite tradition since 1882.
At The Chester Grosvenor, choose from a range of Afternoon Tea menus including traditional, indulgent, champagne and even Gentlemen’s Afternoon Tea for the sophisticated man-about-town, starting from £32.00 pp. Afternoon Tea Week is the perfect excuse to over-indulge in tea, finger sandwiches and delicious cake and where better than in the heart of Chester?
BIG announcement for September
Next month, we will be publishing online the full list of live art
demonstrations and talks at the Fair in November. This gives
you plenty of time to plan your trip around the must-see events
taking place throughout the weekend alongside the high quality,
original artwork available to buy and view.
