Pumpkin Art Exhibition - Call for Spooky Sculptures!

Budding artists young and old have an opportunity to put their creativity to the test this Halloween, as Hart’s Hotel and Restaurant launches The Hart’s Award for Pumpkin Art 2016.

Once again the hotel and restaurant is encouraging spooky sculptors of all ages to get out their carving knives and craft boxes and come up with their most scary and imaginative designs for the competition – which will be held from 5pm on Sunday 30th October in the Park Bar Courtyard at Hart’s Hotel.

The annual event sees families and individuals from across the city getting into the competitive spirit and pitting their artistic talents against each other in a bid to create that perfect petrifying pumpkin.  If carving is not your thing entrants are encouraged to decorate their pumpkins with sequins, paint or whatever comes to hand!

Ghouls and ghosts, scary faces and even a few famous ones have all been captured in vegetable form in previous years and it is hoped that this year’s event will prove as popular as ever.  With prizes on offer for the best adult and child pumpkins as well as the best children’s fancy dress, competition is sure to be fierce!

The Pumpkin Art Exhibition starts at 5pm on Sunday 30th October, in the Park Bar Courtyard at Hart’s Hotel.  Pumpkins must be delivered to Hart’s before midday. This year we are delighted to have Professor (Hon) Ann Priest as our judge.  Ann is an Honorary Professor of Nottingham Trent University and is also Chair of Nottingham Young Creatives, and Trustee of Nottingham Contemporary and Broadway Media.

There will be prizes for each winner:
Adult category : dinner for 2 in Hart's Restaurant
Children's category: 2 tickets to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Theatre Royal on Wednesday 11th January 2017.
Children's Fancy Dress: Family pass to White Post Farm
