AN art festival set to take place next year has announced which artists will form the centrepiece of the event.

Arts for All, which will run for three weeks from August 5, will feature 10 huge works in locations around Sudbury and is being organised by Julia Prior, owner of Bookends in Gaol Lane.

Nine artists have been commissioned to create the pieces including children’s illustrator Rebecca Elliott from Great Cornard, graffiti artist David Wortley and Michelle Ranson, head of art at Great Cornard Upper School, with a final place for the winner of a Bookends competition launched this week.

Bookends owner Julia Prior said: “I want people to bring their ideas into the shop by the end of December, and in January we will have an exhibition with all the artists together.

“It doesn’t have to be a painting, it just has to be their interpretation of Sudbury.”
