Crapper Art

Craper Art This exhibition is full of works inspired by, and information about, toilets. E.g Thomas Crapper did not invent the toilet - King Minos of Crete had the first flushing water closet recorded in history and that was over 2800 years ago. Primarily however it is an art exhibition. We have works by over fifty local artists on the subject of toilets


On display are:-

  • Imaginative and humorous paintings.
  • Installations made from toilets and toilet paper.
  • Painted loo seats.
  • Information about the history and development of toilets.
  • A large 'white board' for compiling toilet puns.


The exhibititon opened to the public on the 1st October and will run to Thursday 24th October.

Open Tuesday to Saturday 12 til 4pm.
