Tulip Radio Canvas

What's NewPosted by Maggie Goodsell Thu, May 19, 2016 01:36PM
Just delivered our entry to the Tulip Radio Office. Thanks to Wyn, Veronica, Gill, Jon, Bev, Katie, Denise, Mo, Clare & Maggie for their excellent contributions.

There are several finished canvases on their walls making a colourful display. All the entries will be on display at the Pride of South Holland Awards ceremony, 18th June, South Holland Centre.

For anyone who hasn't been following this the competition is to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday with a series of canvases, each depicting events from a year of her life. Our year was 2008.

If anyone fancies having a go at one of their own, Tulip Radio are still looking for entrants but the deadline for entries to be in is 27th May.
