Made in Burton Green 2018 Press Release

Don't miss Made in Burton Green 2018 which celebrates arts and crafts in the local community as part of a biennial arts project, in association with Warwickshire Open Studios. The village is hosting a weekend of events on 23 & 24 June to showcase the creative talents of residents, with the outdoor exhibits in situ between 16 June and 8 July.

This year's event incorporates an exhibition, a scarecrow competition and a sculpture trail on the theme of 'Mischief in the Woods', and visitors can enjoy them all with a short circular walk taking in the Kenilworth Greenway and the National Grid Wood. Local community groups, Burton Green School and Berkswell Beavers and Cubs have all contributed to the project so come and see what we've been up to in the woods. This area of the village will be closed to the public in the future due to the construction of HS2, and the Greenway will be diverted until the completion of the railway. So do come along and help us celebrate our environment while we still can!

The exhibition at the Village Hall (CV8 1PH) will feature photography, painting, woodwork, ceramics, jewellery and textiles, with opportunities to purchase works and to talk to the artists. Opening times are 12pm to 5pm on Saturday 23rd and 10am to 5pm on Sunday 24th June. Refreshments, light lunches and home-baked cakes will be available, and the Village Choir will be performing at 3.30pm on Sunday 24th June.

The scarecrow competition will be held over the weekend, and visitors to the Made in Burton Green events will be encouraged to vote for their favourite scarecrow. The scarecrows will be exhibited along the Greenway at Burton Green and maps of their locations will be available for visitors. The more scarecrows the better - anyone can make their own and enter the competition - all that's needed is a little creativity and imagination. Scarecrow competition entries should be brought to the Village Hall on Friday 15th June from 3.30 to 7pm for registration and display. The winner will be announced at 4.30 pm on Sunday 24th at the village hall. Follow on #madeinburtongreen and find us on Facebook and Instagram.
