BCAF Children's Art Trail is an exciting project that brings together all the children's creative works of art in the beautiful setting of Burbage Methodist Church.
Children will follow the colourful snail trail along Church Street and Windsor Street leading them into Burbage Methodist Church, where they can find a gallery of all their work.

Children from our local schools, playgroups and clubs will be given the opportunity in their own setting to have a hands on art experience working with a variety of materials to fire their imaginations.

Our overall theme of  'All Things Bright & Beautiful' inspires everyone to be creative and share ideas. We look forward to welcoming lots of children and their families into the Church to make this a truly community event!

They've played Ronnie Scott's, and frequently sell out clubs in London.

The amazing street flamenco group from London to the World.

When you have experienced the breath-taking momentum of this group, you will realise you have just seen something spectacular and unique; the speed and power of the feet stomping of Lourdes, the raw captivation of the flamenco guitar of Andres, and the amazing vocals of Javier, and how it all melts in a magic and passionate performance.

Alma Gitana are quickly earning a reputation in the Flamenco and World Music scene, with all the shows selling out, and raving reviews and testimonials about the group’s passion and quality.

Alma Gitana are:

  • Lourdes Fernandez: dance
  • Andres Garcia: guitar
  • Javier Moreno: vocals
  • Ayoze de Alejandro: percussion

Painting Demonstration at the Congregational Church

Date: Mon 13 May, 2019

Time: 19:00

BCAF is delighterd to be working once again with Hinckley & District Society of Arts to bring you this two hour live demonstration by the talented and prolific artist Vic Bearcroft.

Vic is a professional wildlife and pet portrait artist, who specialises in pastel on velour, but also works in pencil, watercolour, coloured pencil, charcoal, oil and acrylic media.

Having spent part of his childhood in Kenya, Vic has been drawing animals since he could hold a pencil. Being passionate about wildlife in general - particularly wolves - enables Vic to work with a large number of animal welfare and conservation organisations worldwide, donating prints, merchandise and funds.

“While I consider myself to be a wildlife artist, I prefer to paint close up intimate portraits of animals as individuals, rather than in landscape settings.  My aim is to capture not only the likeness of the subject in my painting, but also the life and soul in its eyes.  To me, eyes are the most important aspect of a portrait – human or animal.  People tell me they can see my paintings come to life through the eyes. 

"My preferred medium is pastels on velour paper, which allows me to create both softness and detailed textures in my paintings.”

‘Creativity is my passion. I love to explore different mediums and styles, from sketching to painting, writing and illustrating, and even photography. I never tire of which, above all, is my constant source of inspiration.’

Tonight's demonstration is entitled "Wildlife in Pastels"

Snow Leopard Vic Bearcroft
