AN arts and crafts exhibition will be staged by Ludham villagers over the bank holiday weekend, May 3 to 5.

This followed a similar - and successful - weekend last year, when more than 30 villagers exhibited.

The event will be held in St Catherine's church, Norwich Road and the adjoining Church Room from 10am to 5pm.

Many of the exhibitors from the previous year will be represented, together with some displaying for the first time.

This year's exhibition will again include a series of demonstrations taking place over the three days between 11am and 3pm, of a variety of crafts, including pottery, bead jewellery, felt making and egg craft.

The event will include paintings, pottery, porcelain, wall hangings, crochet, oriental brush work, cross stitch, petit point, models, photography, as well as a series of works in different media by Norwich School of Art graduate, Marie Ryan, based around the microscopic world.

Several of the artists will also have stalls of items for sale.

One of the new exhibits will be a display of engravings by the famous engraver HS Percival, being shown by kind permission of the engraver's granddaughter, Ludham resident Dinah Williams. Harold S Percival was elected as an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1904.

His work was exhibited alongside many famous engravers, including Sir Francis Seymour Haden, Frank Short and Sir Charles Holroyd. The influence of Norfolk waterways and boats on HS Percival's work, gained during frequent visits to the family cottage at Barton Turf, can be clearly seen.

Also at the exhibition there will be displays and film shows of archive material showing Ludham in times gone by, put on by the Ludham Archive Society, as well as the large textile map of Ludham made as a Millennium project and models of Broads boats.

Admission to the exhibition and demonstrations is free and there will be refreshments available throughout.

There will be a competition “Where is this in Ludham?” with photographs by Ed Grapes. For younger visitors, there will be a display of artwork by the children of Ludham School and a display of teddy bears from Gail Usher's large collection.

Last year there were over 600 visitors to the exhibition and it is hoped a similar number will attend this year.
