Cookham Festival

An unusual view of Cookham

The Cookham Festival, a celebration of the arts by the village, for the village, is now running! Our club usually runs a project for the festival and this time we have put on a display of paintings in the Ferry inn with the theme ‘An unusual view of Cookham’. These include, for example, perhaps a small detail of a building or an unusual view, so that visitors can have the fun of seeing how many places they can recognise.

The majority of paintings are for sale during the event. The plan is that they will be on display from 8th to 15th May, and then taken down on the 16th. Please see the information below for full details.

Exhibition now open!

The Cookham Arts Club Exhibition for the Cookham Festival is now open until Wednesday ​15th May (Weekdays 11am – 5pm, Weekends 10am – 5pm).  It is on show at the The Ferry Restaurant, Cookham, SL6 9SN.

A varied selection of paintings reflecting views of Cookham are on display. Most of the work is produced by Art club members.

Also on display are exhibits produced from Cookham Festival workshops – in February with Gary Spencer, March with Linda Saul and April Alison Pink.
