In 2016 HACS is offering it’s members the chance to share their work and meet art lovers, buyers and the curiously creative during h.Art Week. The venue is as old if not older than HACS itself! Sitting on land which was next to Cider and Perry Makers W M Evans who moved to Widemarsh Common in 1891. All the pectin produced in Great Britain from 1917 to 1950 was made in Hereford by W M Evans.
Perhaps that pectin went into the jam the cricketers would have used at the teas for cricketers between 1829 to 1937, including matches between Hereford and an All England Eleven, that were held at the Widemarsh Common Cricket Ground. Scones and jams on a sunny day with the thack of leather on willow – aah memories.
So if you are an art lover or a cricket historian or Heritage Open Days visitor, you’ll have the opportunity to see inside the building during h.Art.
HACS would like to thank Hereford Council and Halo Leisure Centre for their support in making this venue available to the Society.
