Louise McKenna Manager of the Rum Story said: "With such a talented group of artists joining us in the Rum Story last year it was great when Emma got back in touch to organise another showcase this year.

"Now that we have been back open for 12 months it is amazing to be able to offer a space for local artists to come together and show their work in a town centre location, best of all its free to come and have a look."

Miss Hunt added: "After such a successful year in 2021, I’m delighted to be working in conjunction with The Rum Story and Whitehaven Harbour Commissions again to provide a beautiful exhibition for our local artists and photographers this summer.

"This is a great partnership and is sure to dazzle us with more hugely talented artists and photographers, in the glorious setting of the courtyard."

The event will open on July 15, and there will be a changeover on August 12 for another four weeks.
