“There are many talented artists and craftspeople in and around Rugby, and one of the Society’s aims is to provide a public showcase for their talents, as well as regular meetings, talks and activities for all those interested in the arts. Come and enjoy our show, and if you like it – join us!”

An independent panel of judges will evaluate the works entered, and the public will also be able to vote for their favourite – the ‘Visitors’ Choice’.

The Mayor of Rugby will presenting the 2021 Floor One Awards, at the 1st December 2021 Members’ meeting, when there will also be a demonstration from a special Mystery Guest.
