The Trail first hit the Belper streets in 2014 as part of a vision we had to bring together local and diverse artists, along with the fact that Belper really lacked exhibiting space for artists. Since then the Trail has grown… and grown… and grown.
We welcome a few new venues this year, including the fabulous 1924 Building, along with all our most popular venues where you can find the most diverse artists.
We have many new artists joining us for the first time this year so please do look out for them and do also look out for workshops and demonstrations that will be in a good few places so people can see art in action.
But it is not just about seeking out the artists. A full programme of live music will also take place with the main stage being in The Memorial Gardens – which becomes a hub of activity with food and drink stalls. Captain Dan will be back from his travels around the seven seas! Look out for Ade Wilson and his fabulous circus skills! Makeney Morris will also be around. There will also be a Children’s book fair around the Library area so be sure to take a look at that.
Come along and enjoy all The Arts Trail has to offer.
