Pop-Up Art Exhibition Returns
After a 2-year wait, on Saturday 05 March and Sunday 06 March, we will be hosting our Pop-Up Art weekend again.
The event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the charity, which, like many small charities, had much of its income reduced due to the pandemic and the lack of fundraising events it could run. So there is a lot of excitement about the return of the Art Weekend from the staff and volunteers at the Centre, as well as the artists who will be exhibiting.
The event is free to attend and visitors will be welcomed by a range of work, from paintings, photographs, ceramics, jewellery, sculptures and much more. The diversity and quality of work being exhibited this year is fantastic. With live demonstrations from some of the artists, there will be plenty to see and do.
To date over £132,000 has been raised by this event alone. During the pandemic, the event went virtual but now plans are in full swing to make this the best Pop-up Art Weekend ever.
The Centre provides a hugely valuable service to over 500 people living with MS, and their families, in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas. Our experienced team play an important role in empowering people with MS to manage their symptoms and live life to the full.
I don’t know where I would be without the help of the Centre; I value not only the physical benefits but also the emotional support that is always available. I know that should I need any additional help I have somewhere to turn to – this is so reassuring when the future is so uncertain.

This year the art weekend is being sponsored by The Clare Foundation, a charity that brings together key stakeholders from businesses and charities to facilitate and create positive change across society in Buckinghamshire.
Stella Kubale, Head of Fundraising at the Chilterns MS Centre, said:
We have been amazed at the support we have received over the past 2 years, but we are all looking forward to running one of our best events again. It not only gives people the chance to take in some wonderful art but allows the local community to find out a bit more about us too. We are so grateful to The Clare Foundation for supporting this year’s event and are delighted to have them on board.
The Clare Foundation are thrilled to be funding this fantastic event and supporting the Chiltern MS Centre who do such great work in the community supporting those in need. We look forward to attending the event in March in Wendover, meeting the local artists, and seeing the beautiful works of Art on display.
