A knight’s tale in Warwick

The chivalry and splendour of a bygone era is being brought vividly to life in a new exhibition in the heart of Warwick.

Warwickshire Museum in Market Place is hosting ‘Distant Voices’ A dramatic exhibition of paintings by Leamington-based artist Noreen Mason and armour worn by ‘The Knights of Middle England’.

It will run from Saturday, 22nd January to 15th March in Pedlars Gallery, where Noreen Mason’s beautiful, dynamic and colourful work, conjure up a lost world of horses and bold knights in shining armour. Her inspiration comes from her love of horses, and her interest in the days of chivalry and valour.

Karl Ude-Martinez, who runs the locally based ‘Knights of Middle England’, has been invaluable to Noreen in her unceasing quest for knowledge and enlightenment about days of old.
