Cowper Museum is blossoming


THE Cowper and Newton Museum invites you to attend its Georgian Garden party, happening within the glorious gardens of its base in Olney’s Market Square, this Saturday and Monday.

Traditional games including croquet, quoits and the coconut shy will tempt the children, although they might prefer to follow the garden trail among the blossoming eighteenth century flowers.

Enjoy tea and cake in the courtyard while you watch a lace-making demonstration and then wander the museum and learn the real history behind ‘teatime.’

A splendidly quaint, historic way to spend the day...

> THE oil painting on the right, is by talented artist David Newens, who has once again been selected to show his work alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading portrait artists.

The work is on display at The Mall Galleries in London from today, and through to May 18.

Congratulations to him!
