A winter exhibition has opened at The Old Fire Engine House in Ely. 

Work from artists Anthony Day, Richard Neal and Derek Andrews will be on show from December 4 until January 29.  

Ann Jarman, owner of the house, has been offering exhibitions to locals through to Royal Academy artists over the last 50 years. 

Anthony brings his annual exhibition where he’ll exhibit a selection of large works inspired by the fen countryside.

Derek has created an exhibition of small, metal sculptures and scale models of his own vision for a sculpture park. 

Richard brings his unique and humorous take on Fenland life with watercolours, sketches and the occasional wooden boat.
