WATbrochure2016In 2016 we celebrate Widcombe’s 10th Art Trail! To mark the event we will be having a party in the Widcombe Social Club, 6-9pm, on Friday 13 May. Do join us!  The Widcombe Art Trail is run by the Widcombe Association, Bath’s largest and most active residents’ association. For information concerning the trail contact Sarah Lewis.

The annual Art Trail hopes to involve the whole community. In 2016 as well as many private homes and studios, two local hostelries, a cafe, a shop, a school, a church, and the brand new Widcombe Social Club are involved, and at the the Bath workshop for Action on Hearing Loss twelve of the talented tutors are showing their own work alongside work by their clients.

As well as enjoying the wide range of work on offer, and the opportunity to discuss the techniques and inspiration with the artists themselves, you can enjoy the weekend as an opportunity to explore and appreciate Widcombe – a very special part of Bath, where the city meets the countryside, full of history and lovely views, yet only just over the river from Bath Spa Station and Southgate. The footbridge behind the railway station is a handy route.

Widcombe Art Trail is a member of Bath Open Studios, a collaborative group representing the Open Studios and Art Trails In Bath. While each trail has its own individual style all share a relaxed and friendly welcome. They take place in different areas of Bath and allow visitors to walk between venues, most of which are the artists’ own homes or studios.
