EXHIBITION AT DEWSBURY TOWN HALL
Ever since its formation in 1963 Dewsbury Arts Group’s aim in furthering an interest in the Arts has embraced the Visual Arts. The first major presentation by the Group was, in fact, its first Art Exhibition held in Dewsbury Town Hall in October 1963. The Annual Exhibition, now a Summer event, has been staged each year since then in Dewsbury Town Hall.
