A CREATIVE festival is set to return to a Leek park.

Art-lovers can look forward to the return of a popular Staffordshire Moorlands creative weekend in the Spring when Leek's Brough Park will once again play host to local artisans and crafts people.

Now in its eighth year, Staffordshire Moorlands District Council's Art in the Park will take place over the weekend of May 10 and 11.

Councillor Gill Burton, cabinet member for communities, said: "This is one of the most anticipated events in the Moorlands calendar attracting more and more visitors and exhibitors each year. I'm looking forward to it already.

"It's a fantastic showcase for anyone who makes their own items and I'm always impressed by the quality of range on offer and the skills and creativity displayed by local artisans."

Past exhibitors have included artists, jewellery makers, ceramic producers, photographers, bespoke greeting card makers, a basket weaver and a willow artist.

As well as exhibitors and stalls, the event also features interactive art activities, bandstand performances and children's activities.

The council is now seeking expressions of interest from local artists and craft makers who would like to attend this year's festival.
