The beautiful Ashton Memorial in Williamson Park is set to host the first fabulous Ashton Evening in February 2015.
Local artists and musicians have been quick to offer their generous support to this new venture by the Friends of Williamson Park. Each evening will showcase the work of a local artist and musician in beautiful surroundings, offering the chance to meet the artist and view works alongside musical entertainment.
There will be tasty nibbles prepared by Williamson Park chef Alex Huntington and a complementary glass of wine. Well known members of our local arts community including painter Chas Jacobs, Sarah Bellwood winner of the …Prize and musician Sue Parrish are featured in the programme.
Organiser Liz Dean said: “I’ve been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and generosity of the Lancaster arts scene and we are really looking forward to the first in our series of Ashton Evenings.”
Tickets are £10 and available from the Williamson Park shop
All proceeds raised will go towards the work the Friends do in Williamson Park .
