  • Cathy Haworth and Phil James shared the Gardens Gallery back in April 2010 with an exhibition of Illustration and Photography. They are both really excited to be doing it again.


  • A lot of people who came to see the exhibition back in 2010 commented that Cathy’s work should be on greetings cards – and now it is! She left her full time job in January this year and now designs cards full time which she loves. With a printer and a Marketeer as partners they set up a company between the 3 of them called Love from Lemonade. They now have an ever expanding range of quirky cards designed to make people smile, and are sold across the country. The exhibition in December will feature cards as well as several silly doodles that she still does in her spare time.


  • Phil James has over 2 decades of experience producing award winning photorealistic imagery for high profile agencies, photographers and brands. Using state of the art techniques, a fresh approach, a learn as you go attitude and a very relaxed manner, Phil, based on Montpellier Retreat, now runs a creative studio specialising in high-end still and moving image production. This exhibition will celebrate his 20 years as a creative photographer. He also has a sausage dog called Brooke.


  • Joining Cathy and Phil this time around is the lovely Mac & Ninny. They are a local small paper company who believe if you love it you should label it. They design book plates, greetings cards, preserve kits, diaries and planners and make very lovely prints too.

  3. Unfortunately, there is no disabled parking in the gardens.
  4. Exhibitors should take care to design their exhibition layout with wheelchair use in mind.
