Event details

We can’t wait to welcome our artists and visitors back to Melbourne Festival! Our fantastic hosts are offering 60 venues this year for artists to exhibit in te heart of Melbourne, South Derbyshire. Entry £5 adults, under 18’s free.

This year the Melbourne Festival Art & Architecture Trail features work by 150 of the Midlands’ best creative artists exhibiting their work in gardens, halls and local homes not usually open to the public in the heart of Melbourne. We assure you that we have done everything we can this year to ensure our hosts, helpers, artists and the public have a great weekend!

The trail consists of easy-walking loops around the central streets of Melbourne and can be started at any point. Each adult will need a Trail Wrist Band and a Trail Guide to enter the buildings, they are available from street sellers and cost just £5 per adult, under 18’s free. The Trail Guide consists of a map of Melbourne with festival sites marked and details of buildings and the artists they are hosting. . The Wrist Band is a pass permitting access to all venues – no Wrist Band = NO ENTRY.

As a historic village parking is limited in the village centre but never fear we have a car park at Melbourne Schools, Packhorse Road DE73 8JE and a Park & Ride from Tori & Ben’s Farm Shop, Kings Newton Lane DE73 8DD. You can pay for your parking and buy Trail Guides at the Car Park.
