Getting Arty

The Contemporary Art Fair is returning to Windsor for another year. Taking place over the weekend of 9 to 11 November, the event will showcase over 160 artists in the unbeatable setting of the racecourse. Work on display will include pieces from both established favourites and emerging talent to create an eclectic exhibition that is a must for Berkshire art lovers.

A private viewings evening is set to take place on the Friday, offering visitors the first peek at this year’s offering. The rest of the weekend will see demonstrations by exhibiting artists, plus an interactive art area with artist-led workshops. This year the fair is raising money for The Prince’s Trust, which works to transform the lives of young people across the country.

Feeling Festive

Believe it or not, it’s that time of the year again…

The Newbury Festive Fair will be kicking off Christmas celebrations on 10 to 11 November at Newbury showground. There will be something for all the family, from a Circus through to a ‘Festival of Dogs’ for your four-legged friends. The Great British Bake Off’s Julia Chernogorova will also be making a guest appearance.

Park Run

Grab your trainers and join one of the Parkruns that take place across the county. Starting at 9am, the 5km runs are low pressure events that are suitable for all abilities. Locations include Thames Valley Park and Dinton Pastures. Every Saturday.

Charity Race Day - 23 November

Ascot Racecourse will be holding a race day in aid of the Prince’s Countryside Fund, which raises money for those living and working in our countryside. There will be events and activities inspired by rural life, and a charity race for the fund.

Rollerski - 4 November
