A special Christmas event at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum on Saturday 7 December 11am – 1pm welcomes visitors to enjoy a festive drink and mince pie and get their Christmas shopping done with a bonus of 10% off purchases all day in the Crafted for You and Society of Artists exhibitions as well as purchases from the Art Gallery & Museum Shop.

At the special event visitors will also have the first opportunity to see the Worcester Society of Artists 72nd annual exhibition. This is a great opportunity to see and purchase a fabulous and eclectic selection of art created by local artists.

Members of the Society will be doing demonstrations in the Art Gallery on Wednesdays from 10.30am – 1pm during the exhibition.

On Saturday 21 December the festive fun continues when families can enjoy Christmas Crafts; from 11am – 3pm drop in to the Art Gallery and create pots of Christmas Magic; decorate your pot, roll a beeswax candle and wrap it in style to make the perfect Christmas gift!

The charming Balcony Café is also celebrating the festive spirit serving a special seasonal menu including warming lunches, Method-Roastery coffee and delicious home-made cakes.

The Art Gallery & Museum is open Monday – Saturday, 10.30am – 4.30pm, entry is free.
