Apply now to exhibit at one of the UK's leading rural arts festivals for the Art & Architecture Trail, 12 - 13 September 2015.
Last year over 4,000 people visited the town to enjoy the Art & Architecture Trail Weekend, where more than 100 artists and designer makers exhibited in 70 venues throughout this beautiful Derbyshire market town.
In 2014, overall, artists took at least £40,000 in sales and more work was commissioned.
Feedback from artists exhibiting at last year’s Festival told us that 95% thought the Festival was either “excellent” or “good”; 86% said their visitor numbers were either “excellent” or “good” and 75% are likely to apply to exhibit again this year.
Here's what some of 2014's artists said about the Festival:
"Professional profile in print and online. Excellent regional reputation amongst visitors and makers."
"Great atmosphere in the town and attracts visitors with a real interest in art and craft."
"Good publicity as visitor numbers demonstrate, the event encourages the right kind of buying public."
