Peacock Arts Trail 2019 COMING SOON!

That’s right! The peacocks are shaking their feathers and getting ready to strut their stuff in 2019!

In case you’ve not already spotted them, the dates of the next Trail for your diary are:
Saturday 5 – Sunday 13 October 2019

We want YOU to get involved!

If you’re new to the Peacock Arts Trail, we are a bienniel arts trail, established in 2013, with the aim of celebrating the arts in Corsham and the surrounding towns and villages in North-West Wiltshire.

We provide 9 days of open studios which gives members of the public the opportunity to meet the artists and see and discover their art. And it gives artists the opportunity to show and sell your work to the public and network with local artists.

We are open to all artists, whether you have been in business for years, are just starting out or simply enjoying a creative hobby. This is a fabulous opportunity to chat with like minded creative souls. 2017 was fantastic with greater footfall than ever before, but we know we can do even better so for 2019 we are busy working on new plans to make it the best Trail yet!

So if you create, make, craft or design, please follow our blog, subscribe to our newsletter and get those dates in your diary!

You will have probably spotted by now that Corsham has been yarnbombed! Look out for pompoms up trees, ladies flying with balloons & cyril the sausage dog!

This is thanks to the fabulously talented Emma Leith who has been knitting & crocheting like a mad woman all summer! We were very excited to be featured by the Gazette & Herald newspaper, and we thought we’d share a few of our piccies from our adventures on the streets of Corsham…(obviously our identities had to be protected with balaclavas!)
