Henley Arts Trail returns

Henley Arts Trail returns

The last bank holiday in May, 29th to the 31st sees the popular return of the Henley Arts Trail

The last Bank holiday weekend in May sees the return of the popular Henley Arts Trail. Over 150 professional and up and coming artists will display their artworks at 23 venues in Henley and the surrounding villages. Visitors are invited to follow the map of the Henley Arts Trail, which is designed to be easily manageable over the course of the bank holiday weekend. The Trail runs from Bix to Henley town centre, Shiplake, Wargrave, Twyford and Holyport . For more information please visit the website www.henleyartstrail.com


Like the Henley Festival, the hugely popular Henley Arts Trail is now established as a significant event in the Henley calendar. The trail had over 7,000 visitors in 2010 from all over the surrounding area. Now in its 6th year, the 2011 event will be the biggest Trail so far in terms of number of artists taking part. It is a fantastic display of artistic talent for both art lovers and the general public alike. For people of all ages who are looking for something different and interesting to do over the Bank Holiday. With free entry to all events, a perfect reason to make a day of it, and visit the lovely areas along the trail.


Dick Budden, designer and maker of The Henley Festival's 'Silver Shoe' says:

Henley Art Trail is more than a selling opportunity for me. By opening my studio and garden to the public I have met a wonderful mix of people. I enjoy my conversations with visitors and find their comments always positive. HAT also gives me a reason to have a serious tidy up!


A wonderful variety of art will be on display, including paintings and drawings, jewellery, wood, textiles, ceramics, glass, sculpture. A mixture of venues includes artists home studios, high street shops, village halls, restaurants, The Henley Rugby Club and The River and Rowing Museum. The artists will be there to welcome guests and talk about their work. Some venues will be have demonstrations or workshops for members of the public who want to have a go themselves.


It couldnt be easier to follow the trail, simply visit www.henleyartstrail.com to download a map of the route, or call 0118 934 1683. Look out for the arts trail signs, and coloured bunting at each venue.
