Bampton Charter Fair

Bampton Charter Fair

Fair Paintings

 

These three paintings were presented to Bampton Town Council by the family of the artist Elizabeth Burney in August 2010.

We understand that the artist lived in Cove and was comissioned to paint the pictures of the Fair in the early 1970's by BTC. There are a series of 6, of which number 1 was presented to the people of our twinning town Villers Bocage (Normandy) when the Twinning scheme started. These below are nos. 2,3, and 4, and nos. 5 and 6 are in the posession of the family.

The pictures have found a permanent home in the Riverside Hall for the people of Bampton and visitors to our events to enjoy.
