HK Law are proud to support this year’s Purbeck Arts Week (https://buff.ly/3UYeDXt) from 25th May to 9th June.

The festival celebrates art in all its forms, inspires artists to achieve their potential, and invites people from across the community to participate and to enjoy a wide range of arts.

Our own local connection to the artists of Purbeck is via a fabulous watercolour “Wareham Quay” from an oil painting by Helena Humphries. With thanks to Christopher Humphries for allowing us to celebrate his wife’s artwork.
