PAINTING DAY AT PLAS NEWYDD GARDENS, HILL ST., LLANGOLLEN, LL20 8AW

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 17th 2014 – 10.30am to 3.0pm

You are invited to a Painting Day at the beautiful picturesque Gardens of Plas Newydd, home for 50 years of the famous Ladies of Llangollen.

Meet outside the café courtyard at 10.30am and at 10.45am there  will be a tour of the Gardens and in particular a look at the watercolour paintings of the Dell done by Lady Leighton (Mary Parker) proposed to be one of the best amateur watercolour artists of the time.  The rest of the day will  be free for you to sketch/paint as you choose (bring your own materials etc.) and mix with other artists.

The story of the Ladies and the house is fascinating and if you wish to take a tour of the house while you are here there will be a special 10% discount off  the price:-

        Adults                                From £5.50    to    £4.95        

        Seniors/Concessions                From £4.50    to    £4.05

If you do not have time on the day but would like to come back another day a voucher can be issued offering the same discount for the house.

There is a good café on site with homecooked food  -   lunches, cakes and afternoon teas etc.  or you can bring your own picnic.

If you are interested in coming for the day please contact Sue Hall/Kevin Pennington between 10.00am & 5.00pm (except Tuesdays) on  01978 862834 or reply by e-mail.

Best wishes

Sue Hall (Plas Newydd)
