Sculpture by Tom Hiscocks added to Swaffham’s Visual Arts Festival programme

A mid-Norfolk arts festival aiming to establish itself on the county's cultural calendar has received a boost with the news it will be able to add sculpture to the disciplines it encompasses.

The programme for the Visual Arts Festival in Swaffham, which will run from September 28 to October 28, already includes film, architecture, photography and paintings.

Now it has announced that sculptor Tom Hiscocks has agreed to exhibit some of his work at the art exhibition that will close the event.

Organisers hope Mr Hiscocks, whose recreation of the Queen's Beasts from recycled materials was viewed by the monarch during her jubilee tour, will bring new pieces based on wild animals to the Swaffham Assembly Rooms.

Festival publicist Denis Bishop said: 'Having seen the exhibition he has recently had at the Assembly House in Norwich I made contact with him and he seemed delighted to be able to provide something for our exhibition.

'Our aim has always been to widen the visual arts that we have available to people. The quality will hopefully increase the number of people we are attracting.'
