Get set for an art exhibition to be held in an unusual place – a gents barbers in Hitchin.

Talented artist Jane Visick will be holding the event at True Gents Barbers in Bucklersbury on the weekend of Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9.

The occasion will showcase local artists with the theme being ‘Steampunk’ – a genre of science fiction concerned with steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology – as well as fantasy and superheroes.

Jane told the Comet: “This is one of a number of local art events which are being co-ordinated by members of the Hitchin Art Hub, a facebook group for local artists.

“We are trying to raise the profile of the wealth of talent in the area.”
