A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth.
One winter's night it was so cold it began to snow
Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy's hut…
Percy the Park keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them…
A snuggly, fun and heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to and furry friends to meet.

In this exhibition Maidenhead painter John Percy brings together many smaller works made over a long period and not previously seen together.
His abstract work explores process from various starting points, the choices available, decisions made, chance events, the sensitive dependence on initial conditions and the precarious balance necessary between order and disorder in the modern world.
His paintings are not pictures of something. They are works that are enigmatic, contemplative objects, carrying a certain poetic power and, at the same time, something that is a statement of personal ideals and an expression of his sense of beauty in the apparent chaos around us.
There will be a Meet the Artist session on Saturday 10 September and a one day Open Studio at his home studio in Maidenhead on Sunday 11 September.
