Summer exhibition returns to Capel Manor

We are delighted to announce that the EAC Annual Exhibition, now in its 90th year, will be returning to Capel Manor this summer.

This highly popular event has been held every year since 1932 without interruption, even during the Second World War. For the past two years, the exhibition has taken place online, due to the pandemic.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a range of work by local artists, both amateur and professional, working in mediums including watercolour, oil, acrylic, pastel and print, as well as sculpture and ceramics.

The exhibition will be open to the public, 10am to 5pm, from Saturday 30 July to Saturday 13 August in the Floristry Barn at Capel Manor Gardens, Bullsmoor Lane, Enfield EN1 4RQ.
