A group of 30 East Anglian artists will showcase their work at Blackthorpe Barn, near Bury St Edmunds, at an annual contemporary exhibition which is now in its 18th year.

Artworks showcases original art at the 14th-century building and visitors will get the opportunity to view the eclectic exhibition for three weeks.

More than 2,000 people are expected to attend and all artwork will be for sale alongside daily opportunities to meet the artists at the exhibition.

A Mini Artworks prize draw will also take place, with money donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust as well as the Artworks schools outreach programme.

Visitors can enjoy homemade cakes and coffee in the barn’s new cafe and greetings cards and other smaller gift items are available to buy in the Artworks shop.

Artworks takes place from Saturday, September 9 to Sunday, October 1, from 10am to 5pm and admission is free.
