The 36th instalment of the popular show will run from October 22 to 25 at its traditional home of the North Devon Yacht Club at Instow.

The show was founded 35 years ago by well-known local artist Ian Hudson to raise money for Appledore RNLI.

Organiser Sandy Peace said: “Over the years this exhibition has raised many thousands of pounds for Appledore Lifeboats and their brave volunteer crews.

“The exhibition has changed, evolved and grown, we now include not only some wonderful accredited artists from the South West using a variety of mediums, but also exceptionally talented crafts people, skilled in photography, pottery, glassware, metalwork, jewellery or stitchery.”
