It is with great sadness that the committee have decided to cancel the Young Art 2021 competition.This would have been the 19th year that the competition has been held and over this time we have raised over £140000 for Cancer Research UK.
It is amazing that the 2020 exhibition snuck in before we were put into lockdown. However, with a second wave looming over us and further restrictions likely we cannot plan to hold this year’s exhibition.
I know that for some children who have entered every year, this will be bad news and I can only suggest to our schools that they maybe offer an in-school alternative.
Please keep in touch and watch our Facebook page and website for further information of a relaunch towards the end of 2021.
