AS Settle Flowerpot Festival marks its 10th anniversary Gallery on the Green - a tiny gallery in a red former BT phohe box - in Upper Settle joins in the celebrations with a special photographic exhibition that includes a unique peep behind the scenes at the festival’s creative centre – the potting shed.

A big development last year was the establishment of a flowerpot factory at Watershed Mill on the outskirts of the town, where common or garden plant pots are turned into quirky creations. Previously the pots were transformed in one of the organiser’s back garden.

For this exhibition local photographer John Bentley was given access to the factory. The prints featured in the exhibition show the flowerpot festival men and women hard at work with paint brushes, glue and an awful lot of imagination. Also showing in the exhibition are some of their finished creations.

The central aim of the festival, which is estimated to attract 12,000 visitors to Settle, is to ‘make people smile’ and forms the title of this exhibition.

Gallery on the Green is believed to be the world’s smallest art gallery.

The exhibition runs until September 3.
