What's on

Open every Saturday, 10.30 am to 5pm - from 7 August to 11 September.

The exhibition has something for everyone, featuring work by three local artists:

  • RURAL LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS – by Richard Goodenough
    Richard co-owns Chartham Vineyard and is a member of the Canterbury Society of Art, his oil paintings capture the local Kentish landscape.
  • VINEYARD PHOTOGRAPHS – by Andy Goodenough
    Andy (Richard’s son) is our vineyard manager and was a professional photographer before training in viticulture. His photographs capture seasonal views of Chartham Vineyard.
  • “TRACE” - LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHS – by Lee Funnell
    Lee is a professional photographer and ex-graphic designer specialising in making the mundane interesting and the ordinary beautiful. Her display includes industrial subjects with a focus on Chartham Paper Mill.

This exhibition is timed to coincide with The Canterbury Festival. If you would like more details as soon as they are available - join our priority e-list.
