This year’s Arts Trail will offer visitors the opportunity to see a diverse collective of creativity, ranging from etching to automania in the artists’ own intimate working environment; have hands on experience of a variety of visual arts and contemporary crafts through visiting workshops ranging from Raku ceramics to weaving, and also enjoy a wide variety of local artists’ work in a number of different exhibition venues around the town.

By working with other creative organisation in the town, the Arts Trail offers a truly diverse cultural range providing something for every age group and creative interest.

Southport College will be hosting an exhibition from students across its creative courses including games design and photography plus providing drop-in classes introducing screen-printing and drypoint printmaking.

Southport Little Theatre has VIP tours of its Art Deco home off Hoghton Street and there will be ‘en plein air’ activities for the more adventurous near the Dunes at Ainsdale.

On Saturday the 18th June there will be a fantastic day of relaxed creativity for all the family at a Family Picnic Day in the Mermaid Gardens in Lord Street including celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by making sparkly crowns.  No invitation necessary from The Palace but don’t forget your picnic rug and sandwiches.

Not to be outdone, Southport Market will be hosting its own personal photo and collage sessions celebrating the Platinum Jubilee as well as special workshops including knitting on giant needles, peg loom weaving and block printing greeting cards.
