Only ONE Week to Go

That's right, just one week until MMContemporArt's 2018 exhibition.  

All four artists will be on hand to answer your questions and this week they will be busy preparing their items for the show.  If there is anything you have seen on their websites that you would like a closer look at, please let us know and we will make sure it is available for you to view. 

The village has a choice of pubs and the Cambridge Distillery Showroom, where you can have a lunch, coffee or taste some gin before or after viewing the show and if the weather is good, then a walk along the river can either build your appetite or walk off your excesses! 

We look forward to welcoming you
