Popular Art on the Street event returns on Saturday

Maidenhead town centre will be bursting with creativity on Saturday as Art on the Street returns.

More than 100 artists are expected to set up stalls along the High Street, giving shoppers a chance to buy some unique Christmas gifts while enjoying a fun day out.

Art on the Street events pull in tens of thousands of extra visitors to the town and hopes are high that this weekend's event, the ninth held, will be the best one yet.

Co-director of Art on the Street, Marie Leonard, said: "We have got some really fantastic artists.

"I think there is literally something for everyone whether you're an art buyer and you want to buy a piece of art for your home or you want to bring all of your family for a look around.

"The whole High Street will just be full."

In addition to an abundance of traders from across the country showcasing a huge variety of work, there will also be a chance to taste a selection of street food along King Street.

Claires Court Schools, which sponsors the event, will also be joining in the fun when it sets up its own stage near McDonald's, showcasing pupils creative skills.

Music and drama will also be performed on a separate stage by the Boy and Boat statue, while workshops will take place inside the Nicholsons Centre.

The creative event has been supported by the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Andrew Jenner.

"It is really going to bring Maidenhead alive," he said.

Art on the Street takes place from 10am-4pm. Parking is free.
