Hadleigh Art Trail is six!
September 1st - 11th September 2016
Hadleigh Art Trail returns this September for its sixth year.
This year’s Trail promises to be the most exciting and engaging yet, with something to inspire everyone. Over 30 artists will present their work and creative talents to the public in venues across Hadleigh, stretching from the Hadleigh Park and Salvation Army Hub Café to St. James the Less church...and beyond! Hadleigh Art Trail is proud of its community links with a range of art clubs and community arts organisations as well as individual artists – many of whom live, work or meet in Castle Point and are showcasing a diverse mix of fine art, photography, sculpture, poetry, music and more.
Our partner venue Hadleigh Old Fire Station and its multi-use community space takes centre stage again this year hosting an ‘All Trail’ exhibition featuring work from each Trail artist under one roof - open 10am - 5pm daily throughout the Trail. Home to professional artists, photographers as well as heritage and community groups - HOFS is a vibrant community hub housed in this iconic building.In association with a number of local organisations and partner venues, Hadleigh Art Trail boasts a full programme of FREE events and activities for all ages including:Look out for a range of 'happenings' in the town centre during Trail week - tweet us @Hatrail #HAT2016 #EssexSummerArt and post your pics to our Facebook page.

Hadleigh is rich in history with its 13th Century castle, famously painted by John Constable, its Saxon church, ancient woodland and newly opened Hadleigh Park - venue for the London 2012 mountain-biking event. Hadleigh’s bustling town-centre offers a range of independent shops and a wide choice of places to eat and drink. Plenty of free parking and well served by bus routes from neighbouring towns and nearby rail stations. So why not make a day of it!
