THE poster for the Norman Nicholson Festival, to be held in Millom at the end of June, has been unveiled.

The unique design, depicting Nicholson emerging from the very environment which inspired his writing, is the creation of Maryport artist and designer Alan Roper. It will be seen on fliers, programmes, and digital outputs as well as posters.

The festival kicks off on June 28 with a social gathering at the Clock Tower in Market Square, Millom, 7.30pm.
