We’d love for you to come and join us on the evening of Thursday 4th December 2014 to celebrate the switching on of the Christmas Lights in Tetbury, and for Tetbury Late Night Christmas Shopping!
Browse the beautiful and rare works that the Gallery has to offer, enjoy a glass of something warming, and a nibble of something festive, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the carol singing and Bands, and maybe even pick up a few unique Christmas presents that are still on your list to track down, like this vibrant Original painting of the 2014 Formula 1 Champion Lewis Hamilton, by Artist Juan Carlos Ferrigno – enthusiasts who watched Lewis’s recent BBC Breakfast interview will know that Lewis has vowed to retain the number 44 on his car in 2015, breaking with the tradition of adopting the number 1 title defence numbering.
During Tetbury’s Late Night Christmas Shopping event, you can take advantage of our December offers, which include a 10% discount when you purchase an Original Painting by Artist Juan Carlos Ferrigno, or 15% discount when you purchase a Secondary Market Print. Plus, take a look at our range of motoring memorabilia items, which make ideal Christmas presents – priced from £4.95.
Below are a few more details about the evening – we’re very much looking forward to seeing you!
