ALL the pieces will fall into place at Coughton Court this April at the venue's first ever Jigsaw Festival.

Over the closed season at Coughton Court staff, volunteers and members of the public have donated new and second-hand jigsaws for the event and at the festival hundreds of jigsaw puzzles will be available for visitors to buy in a constantly changing display.

An impressive 700 jigsaws have been donated including children’s puzzles, traditional scenes, murder mystery, and 3D puzzles.

Imogen Hobson, volunteer event co-ordinator, said: "Over the past few months growing piles of jigsaws have been taking over the offices here at Coughton and experienced jigsaw makers, and a few novices, have been busy checking each one to make sure they are complete.

"We have collected a wide variety of jigsaws, ranging from children’s floor puzzles to classic art works and even to a 3D puzzle of the Titanic, but perhaps our most exciting puzzle is a light-up jigsaw of Venice that comes with bulbs, batteries and a frame so that you can admire your work."

All money raised from the jigsaws sold at the festival will go towards conservation work at Coughton Court.

The jigsaw festival runs from Monday, April 21 – Sunday, April 27 excluding Tuesday as the property is closed.
