Conundrum Art Collective: 'Bling BC'In 2019 local artists were commissioned by The Alex to produce artworks inspired by the hoards of Iron Age gold torcs discovered close to Canidringham.
After a meeting in The Golden Lion they agreed to contribute anonymously under the name 'Conundrum Art Collective' ('conundrum' being a local pronunciation of Canidringham) – known as CAC – and to live up to their epithet by presenting viewers with the conundrum of identifying which famous artists' work had been parodied.

'Oh dear, I don't think that's worth all the money he must have paid.
I'd have preferred some new frocks.'
