WATERSHIP DOWN PAINTING EXHIBITION AND BOOK SIGNING BY RICHARD ADAMS
To mark the 40 year anniversary since Watership Down was first published, the Say No to Sandleford campaign is delighted to be hosting the first exhibition of all 21 paintings by Aldo Galli, commissioned for a special commemorative edition of the book coming out in the USA later this year.
The Exhibition will be taking place at St George’s Church, 206 Andover Road, Wash Common, Newbury RG14 6NU on Saturday 31st March between 11:00am and 4:30pm.
Richard Adams, the author of Watership Down, will be available for book signing between 3pm and 4pm and will also be announcing the winner of a writing competition challenge held recently by pupils of Falkland Primary School.
In addition, between 11:30am and 3:30pm, there will be hourly tours from the church to Sandleford, the area from which the book launches its rabbit saga, the same area which is now under threat from developers.
