Artists queue to book for Art on the Street fair

Artists travelled from far and wide to register for a pitch at the eighth Art on the Street on Saturday morning.

Bookings were taken at the Bovilles Art Shop from 9.30am and a queue of people braved the biting cold weather to register for the event.

The fair, which takes place twice a year, sees a range of artists exhibit and sell their works in the High Street.

The summer fair is on June 8, from 10-5pm.

Members of the Slough Arts Society were the first to start queuing on Saturday morning from 6.15am. Coffees and teas were served by art shop staff to those waiting in the cold for bookings to open.

Last year the art shop sold out pitches within 40 minutes.

"Despite the snowy weather, people are here and they're all superstars," said Marie Leonard, manager of Bovilles.

"I can't tell you how proud I am that people have such faith in the event and the arts, and in Maidenhead.

"The art fair brings such a vibrant cosmopolitan feel to the town."
