Village walks, photographic exhibition and autumn fair make up this year’s Thorney Heritage Weekend
FOUR fantastic artists will be showing their work during the Heritage Weekend staged by Thorney Society at Bedford Hall and Heritage Museum this weekend.
The magnificent Living Heritage photographic exhibition is called “In the Frame,” and will feature work by Bob Davis, Steve Dubois, Lenzman Photographer Peter Rye, and Chris Lane, as well as other local contributors.
Bob of Whittlesey provides an avant-garde look at the Fenland landscape, while Steve Dubois from Wimblington favours more traditional, classic landscapes.
Designer Chris Lane takes a creative look at Peterborough and Thorney, and Lenzman Photographer Peter Rye focuses on natural history and local heritage, especially of old King’s Lynn.
The exhibition is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 4.30pm, and Thorney Museum will be open on both days.
