We are now accepting applications for the 2019 arts trail.

The 6th Belper Arts Trail will take place next year on Sunday 5th May and Bank Holiday Monday 6th May.
It will be focused, as usual, around the centre of Belper involving community centres, shops, businesses, pubs, churches and some private houses.

The 2018 Trail was a great success with glorious weather and over 140 artists in 50 different venues split between an Upper and Lower Trail. We estimate over 3000 visitors came to the town. The Children’s Trail, with Captain Dan the Pirate performing a variety show in The Ritz, was an enormous success; there was an excellent choice of things for the family and having a 10 venue Music Trail within the Art Trail provided an excellent addition.

What we are looking for.

As usual the Arts Trail will fall into the following broad categories:

  • Artists in venues - You will be placed in a venue which we will be determined by us during February/March. This may be a singleton venue or a venue with multiple artists. We take many factors into account when placing you and we also want the trail to stay vibrant so we would look to move people around the trail year-on-year.

  • Window displays - Last May we had ten window displays and this proved to be very popular. We would like to continue this offer in 2019 and would like to invite applications from artists who would like to have a window display.

  • Installations - We are always looking to create a number of installations throughout Belper in the build up to the Trail, or just during the trail, and we would be interested in any proposition an artist may make. If you have an idea for an installation please get in touch to discuss.

Application and Timescales.

Places will be limited and we also will need to ensure that your work fits our criteria.

To apply you need to complete the Application Form, supply images and make payment by 31st January 2019. If you are not selected your full payment will be returned to you.

Only by sending the form, images and payment will you be considered for the Trail.


All the information you need to apply is on the application form, which you can download right here or drop us an email if you prefer us to email it to you.

The Belper Arts Trail has been established to help promote the growth of local artists, engage
with the community and enhance Belper's reputation as a beautiful place to visit.
