Cheltenham Paint Festival
In December 2016. a chance conversation between artist Andy ‘Dice’ Davies and art enthusiast Angela Parks resulted in the first Cheltenham Paint Festival taking place the following year.
Since then the festival has continued to grow in size and
popularity, with artists from the UK and across the globe including legends
such as DANK, My Dog Sighs and INKIE, flocking to the beautiful Regency town of
Cheltenham, to show off their skills.
polar bears are now on the endangered species list
The majestic polar bear has sadly found its way onto the endangered species list. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), this animal is classed as vulnerable to extinction.
At one time the biggest threat to polar bears was us, and it still is – but now for very different reasons. In the past we hunted them illegally for food, fur and sport. Today, conservationists are concerned about the massive impact on these creatures from the effects of human industrialisation and pollution resulting in climate change.
