Wirksworth Festival

9th – 10th September 2023

The Art Trail at Wirksworth Festival involves local people opening their homes to turn the town into a multifaceted gallery with over 100 artists & makers exhibiting and selling their work in more than 70 venues. The exhibition spaces are in buildings ranging from charming stone cottages to impressive Georgian townhouses, historic and quirky buildings, gardens, courtyards, shop windows and civic buildings and churches.

The Trail is the perfect way to meet artists; talk about the work and buy affordable contemporary art whilst visiting some of Derbyshire’s charming homes. If you want to understand the thinking behind a piece of work the artist is there to explain. If you have ever considered commissioning artwork for your home the Trail provides the perfect place to discuss the creation of a special piece and see a wide range of work.

I will be in the Town Hall, Coldwell Street, Wirksworth DE4 4EU
Saturday 9th September  10am – 5pm
Sunday 10th September 10am – 4.30pm
