ART lovers had a treat this weekend as a castle hosted an exhibition of local artists and sculptors.

Rutland Open Studios held its annual Christmas event in the 12th century castle on Saturday and Sunday.

High Sheriff of Rutland Peter Lawson opened the exhibition on Saturday.

The event proved popular with visitors, who were able to enjoy the wide range art while sipping a warm glass of mulled wine.

Public relations consultant at Goldmark Gallery in Uppingham, Sarah Watson, said: “We had a fantastic turn out on both days - I was really surprised how people just kept on coming throughout the day.”
