Darkness empowers even the faintest light.
With this show of works in oil, I would like to celebrate light; light as hope and life; the relevance of light within darkness.
Using the inspiration of 17th century artists such as Caravaggio and Rembrandt as a starting point, I will present a series of contemporary figurative paintings, each a visual ode to the manifestation of light, and beautiful mystery in what often seems a dark and desolate world.

Norden Farm Markets take place on the first Saturday of every month.
They are (mostly) outdoor markets, held under the Linhay barns - a nod to our history as an ancient dairy farm.
The Norden Farm Markets are unique. There's a Cafe Bar onsite, accessible toilets (with baby changing) and a programme of activities from cinema to classes. Stallholders sell inspiring artisanal produce ranging from arts and crafts to food and snacks.
Upcoming Dates: Sat 1 Apr | Sat 6 May | Sat 3 Jun | Sat 1 Jul | Sat 5 Aug | Sat 9 Sept
12pm - 4pm | Entry is FREE
April stallholders include: KaNa Homecooked, Ultrakriti, Flamingo Paperie, Poppy's Bakes, Ging's Things, From Tree 2 U, Halo Apothecary, OPTALIS ArtAble, bakedbyluz, The Three Bears Bakery, Red, Blue and Green, Anton Hazelle Ltd, Rocks and Key, Pixie Tiger Art, INDULGE The Collection, Candleswaxmeltsandmore, The Fairy Toadstool, Izabela Rocks, Moxxi Jewellery and Designs by Emma Louise.
Musician Alfie Griffin will be performing throughout the afternoon. He's a UK singer songwriter who crafts original folk/alternative songs with strong influences from John Martyn, Nick Drake and Jimi Hendrix.
Visiting the market is the perfect Saturday. Shop in the market for unusual, hand made, delicious items and then take in a film or recline with a coffee in our Café Bar where there are plenty of books and games to keep the little ones happy.
In the Summer our night markets are French inspired, complete with long banqueting tables (bring your own tableware) and live music. This year’s Summer night markets are: Sat 1 July, Sat 5 Aug and Sat 9 Sept. We also present special Christmas markets in November and December.
Dogs are very welcome, outdoors at the Norden Farm Markets and there’s always fresh water out for them.
Parking spaces are reserved for blue badge holders and the whole site is accessible.

We have 2 types of pitches available - covered areas under the Linhay (stallholders provide their own trestle tables) and Gazebo pitches. You can drive right up to you pitch on hard standing - so the set up and take down is blissfully simple and doesn’t require lugging!
