The ever-popular Summer Show is returning to the Atkinson Gallery with the Private View being held on Monday 26 June 7 – 9pm, everyone is welcome to attend. This exhibition always proves to be a well-attended and highly talked about event and we look forward to welcoming back some previous entrants as well as new ones.

Last year we capped the sale price of entries at £500 to enable more artists’ sales and make the artwork more affordable. This year we will be keeping this upper price limit and again Millfield will purchase a number of works for the schools permanent collection.

If you  would like to receive information about entering the Summer Show please email
