2015 Artist Registration Open
Registration for our annual Arts Trail held in November is now open - this year it is taking place over the weekend of the 7th & 8th November. The Trail area for 2015 covers the following villages: Timsbury, Camerton, Radford, Paulton, Farrington Gurney, Hallatrow, High Littleton, Clutton and Temple Cloud.
The 2014 Trail was a fantastic event showcasing the work of over 45 artists in 12 venues around our villages attracting over 500 visitors. We anticipate the 2015 event to build on the success of the past 2 years.
Registration can be made online this year or you can download a form to fill out and send to us. Payment options are outlined on the registration form.
Group members please note you will be emailed a registration form.
The CVAT group supported the Midsomer Arts Festival on Saturday 27th June. We had a stand at The Hollies, Midsomer Norton where visitors were able to meet some artists, view & buy our work and find out more about our group.
It was a lovely event to be part of with music, dance & art activities - we look forward to next year. Thanks to Martyn Plant of Norton Hill School for organising it all.
We look forward to you joining our events.
