The party was staged at Hepplestone Fine Art in Heskin Hall Farmers’ Market and Craft Centre near Chorley.
The family, led by Clive and his son Giles, have become an established name on the region’s art scene but it has not been without its ups and downs. Just weeks before the party, the market was damaged in a blaze. The gallery was unaffected by the flames but there was heat and smoke damage requiring a big clean-up operation.
