Phew! Now we're all recovered from the extraordinary weekend of the first ever Combe Down Art Trail, we can reflect on what a fantastic weekend it was. We had over 30 artists taking part at 14 venues around the village. A massive 300+ visitors completed the Trail, enjoying our lovely historic village, the Firs Field Summer Event, as well as being inspired by the vast talent on show in every venue.
Thank you to all the artists who took part, making each venue of 2017 so special, and to everybody who came to the Trail - over 300 of you - thank you!
None of this would have been possible without the huge effort of 'makerer' Jeni Wood. Jeni has worked tirelessly to get the event started and she did a truly wonderful job of creating a stylish, easy to follow Trail. Thank you, Jeni!
Now, who's ready for the 2018 Art Trail?!
The 2017 Combe Down Art Trail has begun! Check out the wonderful artwork by local artists! Meet the artists in their studios and other local venues and buy direct from them! Explore the stunning village of Combe Down and enjoy the Firs Field Summer Event which starts at 2pm!
Don't forget that samples of these stunning writers' stories, recipes and poems will be on lampposts marking the Trail around the village - including poet, writer and sculptor Esme Ellis whose husband has kindly given permission to posthumously show her work.
