An exhibition by artist Steve Ellis will be held at the recently refurbished Croydon Reading Room.

Steve was born in North Wales and had a successful career as a graphic artist before returning to his love of painting and illustration.

When the Reading Room reopened following a three-year refurbishment, Steve painted a mural of a woodland scene behind the new play area free of charge, which has been well-received by the public.


In return, his exhibition will be held at the venue from 11am to 6pm on July 29 and 30.

Free refreshments will be on offer, including wine, and visitors will have a chance to buy Steve's artwork and enjoy the refurbished hall.
