We’re halfway through the Peacock Arts Trail 2017 and it’s been a whirlwind!
The Peacock’s have been out and about on the Trail and we are absolutely blown away by the talent on display. We can’t thank our artists enough for making the Trail so fantastic, their hard work makes it such a success!
And a success it seems to be…everywhere we’ve visited we’re hearing incredibly positive things about visitor numbers and engagement. We also can’t wait to see the creative outcomes of the workshops and drop in activities that have been running through the course of the week.
What has inspired you so far? Have you joined in on a workshop? Where do you plan to visit next? Share your journey with us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

At Woolley Grange Farm we have stained glass, painting, ceramics and jewellery…and that’s just two artists!
