Children’s Rotary Art & Handwriting Exhibition

Key Stage 2 art entry from Pear Tree Primary School 2020

Nantwich Museum is pleased to announce the first live exhibition following its closure due to the Covid 19 epidemic. A small exhibition echoing the annual Rotary Art and Handwriting competition will run in the Museum up until Christmas.

Each year, for the past eleven years, The Rotary Club of Nantwich has organised an Art and Handwriting competition for pupils of local primary schools. Gift certificates and medals have been awarded to the best Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 entries in each category with many of the best entries being displayed in the Museum.

After a particularly successful competition in 2019, attracting almost 1000 entries from ten schools, organiser Ashley Weaver was looking forward to an even greater response in 2020. Unfortunately, the outbreak of Covid 19 and subsequent lockdown mid competition led to the event being officially put on hold until 2021. A number of pupils had however already completed entries for the current year and, in recognition of their support and talent, a selection of the work is now being displayed.

The Museum is currently open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10.30 am – 4.30 pm. Visitors must book their visit by telephoning the Museum on 01270 627104 when they will also be advised of any specific requirements.
