Now in its eighth year, it will include a wide selection of paintings by local artists, including the Marton Art Group.

There will also be a photographic exhibition, craft items and children’s art on display for visitors to enjoy.

Produce and bric-a-brac will be on sale at the church and a number of art demonstrations will take place over the weekend.

Organisers say this year’s festival looks like being the best ever, with a varied selection of paintings by local artists, a photographic exhibition, craft items, and children’s art.

It begins tomorrow with a wine and canapes preview from 6.30pm (£5), and Saturday and Sunday between 10.30am and 5pm.

On Sunday there will also be a harvest service with the Windmill Singers from 6.30pm.
