An art fair that began with just 25 stands celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with five times that number - plus 150 expected artists.
The Windsor Contemporary Art Fair is the brainchild of Sarah McAllister and Deborah James - its co-founders and directors.
Sarah said: “We actively look for new talent, support emerging work and appreciate the value of established, well-loved artists."
The fair has also raised more than £45,000 over the years for the Princes Trust, the charity that supports young people.
Printmakers, photographers, sculptors and ceramicists will be displaying their work at Windsor Racecourse when the fair sets up there on Saturday, November 8 from 10am to 6pm and Sunday, November 9 from 10am to 5pm.
Favourites visitors from past years will include Cliff Wright, illustrator of Harry Potter book covers. Some surprises are also promised.

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
