12 March to 6 May:
John Hughes Art Classes: Showcase

Displaying a wide variety of art work by his students in the Theatre’s Foyer Gallery, John Hughes’ highly popular classes are held in the purpose-designed facilities.  Trained at Cambridge Art School, Kingston School of Art and Goldsmith’s College in London, John is an artist with a lifetime’s experience in art education.  He has had work accepted at several London venues including at The Mall Galleries and The Royal Watercolour Society encouraging excellence, innovation and a fresh approach.  Always available for talks, demonstrations and workshops, he is much sought after.  His classes, traditionally watercolour based, teach techniques in various mixed media. 

John’s students have the benefit of learning from each other.  Some students are relatively inexperienced whilst others have enjoyed painting for many decades.  The classes aim to improve understanding and comprehension of the complete artistic process.   Outside the classroom, Westacre Theatre’s scenic setting includes a landscaped lagoon and the River Nar is but a short wander away. 

These unrivalled opportunities can often inspire students to test themselves with new ideas.  It is the results of these efforts that you can see for yourselves in this annual exhibition. 








Exhibiting at Westacre Theatre…

The exhibition space at Westacre Theatre has been extended as part of our ongoing development work. The new spaces include our existing foyer area, new bar, new link and separate new gallery area.  We usually have between two and three different artists exhibiting with us each season. We always aim to give preference to local artists but are happy to exhibit work from further afield.

The Gallery is open at all performance times.

Visitors are very welcome on other weekdays too, but please always check before you intend to visit by calling the Theatre on 01760 755 007 to make certain there will be someone available to open up the spaces.

If you would be interested in having an exhibition here with us then please do get in touch with the Theatre office on 01760 755 007
