A Woolly Representation of Thrapston

This week see’s the very first Thrapston Arts Festival with lots of things going on in and around the town – frm poetry reading, artists in residence, and local artistsdoing their bit too.

Our, now famous, group of yarn bombers began planning and making their latest creation back in May 2018.  There are currently seven yarn bombing ladies and I’m sure they won’t mind me adding that the oldest is 96.  They continue to surprise us each time they produce a new feature for the town to view.

This tme the creation is a knitted Thrapston town, complete with Plaza, MUGA, the river and lake, plus shops along the High Street and gardens.

Currently on show in St James Church each day 10 till 4 pm from Tuesday until Saturday this week.
