IF WINCHESTER hadn’t already been the upmarket place to shop then the opening of a new paint store should do the trick.

Nationally-renowned Farrow & Ball are opening a new shop in The Square next month and have invited the locals to come and have a look at a special event on March 1.

The paint-by-numbers day is open to all between 10.30am-5.30pm where people can paint murals onto canvas using specially selected Farrow & Ball paint and enjoy some Farrow & Ball biscuits.

Farrow & Ball director, Sarah Cole, said: “The new showroom offers customers the opportunity to experiment with colour, pattern and nish, with complimentary personal colour advice and suggested schemes available if required.”

The store is due to open on Monday (February 24) between 9am-5.30pm Monday to Saturday and between 11am-5pm on Sundays.
