Over the weekend of the May 18-19, more than 30 artists and makers will be exhibiting in 11 different venues in Bath. This annual event is the perfect way to enjoy a weekend of creativity and art without having to stray too far from home.

This is the thirteenth year of the Newbridge Arts Trail bringing together local people, schools, and business sponsors to support the talented artisan community.

The four main public venues are Weston Methodist Church on Kennington Road, Newbridge Primary School, Fairfield House and The Locksbrook Inn. As well as being part of the trail, on Sunday, Fairfield House also has historical guided tours about the lives of the Ethiopian Royal Family in Bath on offer at 12pm and 1.30pm with lunch available afterwards.

The remaining exhibits are hosted in private homes. Visitors can use the map to find exhibitors located across Newbridge which gives adults and children alike a fun way to enjoy locating the venues.

The trail hosts a wide range of creative mediums, from painting and printmaking to pottery and jewellery. If you’re looking to pick up a piece of local art, you will find a diverse array of styles and much of it at very affordable prices. There will be cards and small gifts available making the trail a great place to find a truly original gift whilst supporting local artists.

The trail is free of charge and the venues are open between 10.30am and 5pm. Keep an eye on our website and social media feeds for more information.
