How do I register to be part of the Arts Trail this year?
If you want to take part you need to fill in the online registration form on our website and pay the correct registration fee before the cut off date (15th July 2019)
Who can be part of the Arts Trail?
Arts Trail is a celebration of creativity and whoever does any craft, art or has some related skills to share can take part in the Trail. If still in doubt send us an email and explain what you want to show.
Do I have to live in St Werburghs to exhibit? / Do I need to find my own venue?
We have several community venues available where we allocate the non-St Werburghs Artists. You can select the venue of your preference as a part of the registration process, however, as the venues only have certain capacity the preferences might not always be met.
What time does the Arts Trail start?
The Arts Trail will be taking place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September 2019, between 12 pm and 6 pm.
Are the venues accessible?
The community centre is accessible. We cannot guarantee accessibility for the home venues – they are mostly houses with no added accessibility features.
I share a studio with three other Artists – Do we all need to register to be included in the St Werburghs Arts Trail?
Yes, anyone who wants a profile in the brochure and on the website must register under their own name not as a collective or studio.
The number of people exhibiting at the same address can be unlimited but there will be only one profile in the brochure and on the website.
If I participate in the Arts Trail, am I required to help?
Usually we ask the registered Artists to help us with promoting the Trail, distributing the brochures and putting up posters locally and in external venues. Any social media links to our website (stwerburghsarts.org.uk) or our hashtag (#stwerburghsartstrail) are appreciated.
Generally, spread the word as one says. This is also in the Artists’ interest as the volunteer members of committee can only cover so much, so every little help counts.
What Is The Registration Fee?
The fees are dependant on what your circumstances are, please check the registration form to find out more about this year’s fees.
How to I find the St Werburghs Arts Trail?
By bus – bus number 5 stops at Sevier Street in the heart of St Werburghs (opposite Better Food Company and Childrens’ Scrapstore); buses 24, 48 and 49 stop at Warwick Road on Stapleton Road, which is just across M32 to St Werburghs (5 min walk).
By bike – it is easy enough to find a route to St Werburghs from your location, there is plenty of bike parking spaces – in front of the Community Centre, laundrette, shops, City Farm, pubs.
By car – there are limited parking spaces in St Werburghs and it does get busy at the Arts Trail weekend, so we would encourage you to choose another ways of transport (as above).
If you cannot there is no residential parking scheme, so it is possible to park anywhere where you find a space.
