Art in the Park is back!

Published: 30 May 2024

 Princes Risborough Town Council warmly invites all artists from the Princes Risborough Parish, be it students, hobbyists, or professionals, to partake in the 2024 edition of Art in the Park.


Founded by resident and former Town Councillor, Iain McLauchlan, in 2014, Art in the Park is an art project competition which involves installing a number of boards on the fence line between Wades Park and the railway line. The boards show off work of local Risborough artists talents.  


Art in the Park is now in its eleventh year and has expanded from an original display of 6 artists to an extensive display of talent from over 37 local artists.


We welcome all types of art media, including but not limited to sculpture, ceramics, digital, paint, pastels, and recyclable materials. Selected finalists will have the privilege of their work being showcased on large display boards in Wades Park for everyone to admire. 


The winner will be awarded an annual membership to the Royal Academy, valued at over £100, thanks to our ongoing sponsor, Cymbeline Art and Cards. 


To apply, download our digital application form, or collect a physical copy from Princes Risborough Library (Bell Street) or Cymbeline (High Street). 


Please note, the submission deadline is Friday, 12th July 2024. Entry is free of charge.
