The community of Lady Bay is excited to announce its 23rd arts festival.
It will take place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May from 11am until 5pm.
This year, 80 artists and makers are exhibiting in homes, studios and gardens, promising a brilliant weekend of visual art, design and entertainment.
The arts trail will extend across 32 venues and is well marked on the brochure map with good access through the leafy-wide streets and secret alleys of Lady Bay.
There will be a number of new venues opening and special collective exhibitions in All Hallows Church and Breckles Hall and the newly opened scout hall, featuring artists from Fishergate Point Studio and Backlit Studio Nottingham.
Selected regional artists, including those who will be opening their studios in Lady Bay, will exhibit a range of art from paintings, textiles, illustrations, pottery, sculpture, jewellery, printmaking, photographs and installations.
This year’s theme for community art projects is street art with a number of commissioned artists providing live art and free workshops at the school and other marked venues.
Children are particularly welcome as the festival supports creativity and arts education for young people.
Two young people have been selected to show their work as part of the Young Persons Visual Art Award and young people from Framework Homeless Hostel will be taking part in ceramics workshops.
A huge range of food and refreshments will be widely available, plus excellent music performed at certain venues and wandering musicians playing and singing around the arts trail.
Admission is £5 adults and under-16s go free – valid all weekend – admission with full colour brochure and map.
These can be purchased at the Poppy & Pint, scout hall, Lady Bay Primary School, 131 Holme Road and All Hallows Church
