An art and photography exhibition is being held at a rural retreat in North Bedfordshire this weekend.

Chellington, near Carlton, is a retreat for young people, offering space for a positive change and helps a wide variety of groups including schools, youth charities and organisations.

The exhibition is being held on Saturday, February 28 and Sunday, March 1, 10am until 4pm.

Claire Merrick, from the centre, said: “We’re inviting people to come and visit the exhibition and sale set in the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside.

“The exhibition offers the opportunity to purchase unique art, craft and photography from local artists and photographers.

“This year we are having a dedicated photography room, to give a new space for the many fantastic photographers we have in Bedfordshire.

“Last year we raised £1,200 for Chellington and the Chellington bursary fund which helps groups of young people stay at the centre, this year we’re hoping to top that amount.”

Admission is £1 for adults and children go free. Refreshments will be served and parking is available at the centre.
