This year, Buxton will host its eagerly-awaited fifth biennial art trail as part of Fringe40, marking the 40th year of the Buxton Festival Fringe.
The award-winning Buxton Art Trail will take place during the first weekend of the Fringe, Sat 6th and Sun 7th July. Art lovers will be seen flitting around Buxton, experiencing the work of over 100 artists. Buxton Festival and Fringe-goers alike will enjoy an eye-opening experience with organisers hoping for an even greater diversity of artists and craftspeople plus extra opportunities for participation and involvement to be delivered in community settings. The Trail is a regular addition to the growing number of events in the ever-popular Buxton Festival Fringe, one of the largest UK fringes.
Painters, printmakers, illustrators, photographers and craftspeople, both professional and amateur will be among those on hand to discuss their work. Some will be exhibiting in their own studios, others in the homes and business premises of people who are generously providing space to support the visual arts in Buxton. Buxton Community School is also set to play a big part this year as artists of all ages come together for the most exciting and accessible BAT yet.
