Our Annual Exhibition, held at Stratford Arts House from 13 to 31 July 2017, was again a great success.

Visitor numbers were up on last year with 126 visitors voting for their favourite print. Three of the most popular prints were from the two RPS Distinctions Panels on display. Another print in the main exhibition, "Pair of Lilac-breasted Rollers" by Mary Kirkby, got 7 votes.

Stewart Band visited Bill and his wife Barbara who live in Wendover.

They are professional musicians and enjoy visiting Stratford and going to the theatre.

Bill said he had never won anything in a draw before, so perhaps his luck had now changed.
