Be a Trail Venue
Over the Festival’s Trail Weekend, thousands of people come to the town to view and buy artworks of all kinds, meet and chat with the artists and designer-makers, and soak up the buzz of one of the region’s leading arts festivals. In doing so they visit over 70 houses, shops, businesses and public buildings, and discover the town’s quirky architecture, alleyways (known locally as ‘ginnels’) and rich heritage.
It’s thanks to the generosity of spirit offered by venue hosts letting artists exhibit in their homes and spaces that the Art & Architecture Trail is made possible. We’re always looking for new and interesting places where art can be shown as part of the Trail. If you’re interested in hosting an artist in your home or space for the weekend and being an integral part of this fantastic event, we’d love to hear from you.
