Buxton hosted 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 took place on the first weekend of the Fringe, Sat 6th and Sun 7th July 2019. A big thank to all who exhibited, volunteered, supported and attended our event.

Art lovers explored 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, print makers, illustrators, photographers and craftspeople, both professional and amateur were among those on hand to discuss their work. Some exhibited 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 played a big part this year as artists of all ages came together for the most exciting and accessible BAT yet.
