Lincolnshire Hookers at Audlem Mill
Stella wins the 2011 Mill Shop Didgeridoo competition

There's lots happening at Audlem Mill during the Festival.

The Lincolnshire Hookers present an exhibition of about twenty rag rugs and decorative pieces, using various techniques.

Until Tuesday, one of the Hookers will be on hand most of the time to discuss rag rugging, and to give advice and encouragement.

The RSPCA Stapeley Grange exhibition of Wildlife Art comprises nearly 30 original paintings and prints of a variety of wild animals by well-known wildlife artists.

All the pieces are for sale, with over half of the sale proceeds being split between the RSPCA and the artist's selected wildlife charity.

And finally, the Didgeridoo competition. Pop into the Mill and try to get a noise (preferably harmonious) out of a didgeridoo, and, if you succeed, we'll tell you when the final blow off competition is.

The winner takes home a didgeridoo!
