Admire wonderful exhibits from both amateur and professional local artists in the Art Tent. Featuring painting and pottery demonstrations, photography competitions and children’s activities, the art tent is a section of the Show offering something for the whole family to enjoy.


Professional and amateur artists from around Hampshire come together to display a variety of their works in watercolours, acrylic, oil or many other styles of painting/drawing available to our talented artists.

Many of the works displayed within the marquee can be purchased and taken home on the day. Demonstrations on various arts and crafts take place daily within the marquee and there is always a variety of interactive activities for the children.
