Purleigh Bell Art Exhibition

Purleigh Bell Art Exhibition takes place annually in late June for two weeks at the Picturesque 14th century Purleigh Bell Public House.

Rather than a formal setting this exhibition takes place in the public areas allowing the art to be appreciated at leisure whilst sampling the ales.
