The first Welborne ‘Arts Weekend’ was in 2001. This came about because we were offered the Creative Arts East (CAE) 2001 touring art exhibition at short notice; another village had cancelled because of foot and mouth restrictions. The exhibition was brought on a lorry to Welborne for one day. To compliment the festival we also put on a flower festival in the church and provided refreshments in the village hall
We attracted over 130 visitors and made a small contribution towards village hall and church funds.
