Art in Action

14th-17th July 2016

Thank you

We were extremely proud and grateful to be the chosen charity for the 40th and sadly last Art in Action at Waterperry in July. It was a wonderful event, with a fabulous atmosphere, we even had gorgeous weather.

We would like to thank the organisers for their incredible hard work ensuring everything ran so smoothly and their support, hospitality and generosity. The UCARE team and army of volunteers made lots of new friends and supporters at this unique event.

Come and join us at the 40th and sadly last Art in Action event at Waterperry Gardens, Oxfordshire.

Up to 400 artists, crafters, performers and musicians gather together in Waterperry Gardens to demonstrate their skills and show their work.

You can watch the potter pot, the painter paint and the sculptor sculpt. You can ask the masters of the arts of jewellery, textiles, woodwork and glassblowing about the secrets of their craft. In the ever popular Practical Classes section, you will be able to have a go yourself at the art or craft of your choice with the guidance of an expert teacher.

UCARE have a marquee during the event and we are also very proud to have been chosen as their charity for this year. You can make online donations to UCARE when pre-ordering tickets online.

We look forwarding to seeing you there.
