Colin Grimes and AJ (Andrew) Powell

Lymm Festival celebrating its 25th year!

Lymm artists came together to create a large image with significance to the village.  This year, 32 different artists were each given a small panel to contribute to, which created the large image when they were brought together.

Colin Grimes, chair of Lymm Artists said: “The first Lymm Festival 'Big Picture' was created in 2006. This year we thought it very appropriate to paint a picture of our much-loved, long-serving town crier, Peter Powell, who sadly passed away earlier this year after doing so much for the community".

"We were delighted that Peter’s successor as Lymm town crier, his grandson Andrew Powell, was present to mark the unveiling.  The fabulous picture is now there for all to see outside the village hall on Pepper Street, and is already a talking point in the village!.

"We hope to continue the 'Big Picture' tradition in future years at the festival.”
