Creative art group exhibitions
Two years of hard work by the LOHP Creative Arts Group, finally came together in late October with a series of inspiring exhibitions of visual and performance arts, celebrating the unique landscape, wildlife and history of the Little Ouse headwaters. Launched by Phil Rothwell of the HLF East of England committee, the exhibitions, held at local village halls, attracted many visitors from the local area and further afield. The Creative Arts Project was led by the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and funded as part of the LOHP's Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
The LOHP creative group exhibitions 2013
Reflections on the Little Ouse Valley in art, craft and music, produced by the LOHP's creative group will be presented in a series of exhibitions in some of our local village halls in late October. Led by the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts as part of our Heritage Lottery Fund programme, local artists have produced many beautiful pieces of work (some of which will be on sale) inspired by the valley's wildlife and landscape. The exhibitions will be open from 11am - 4pm at the Lophams’ Village Hall on Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 October and at both Thelnetham and Blo'Norton village halls on Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 October.

Free landscape photography and creative writing courses...
are just some of the many activities on offer from our creative arts project run by the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts. Both courses will explore the landscape through different art forms; photography with local landscape photographer Richard Denyer on Saturday 22nd June, and 'words and images' with Norfolk writer Patricia Mullin (date to be announced). Both courses will start with a walk in the Little Ouse Fens followed by a workshop session. For more details and booking for these exciting opportunities click here.
Spring finally makes it...
New lambs on many of the LOHP sites, willow warblers in the wet woods, sedge warblers in the fens, swallows collecting mud and cuckoos calling are just some of the spring sights and sounds to be enjoyed in the Little Ouse headwaters. After such a long, hard winter it's time to get you boots on and enjoy walking the many footpaths around the LOHP sites.
