Widcombe’s 12th Art Trail
19th – 20th May 2018
Widcombe’s prestigious Art Trail – part of Bath Open Studios – will take place on 19th & 20th May. The successful formula of large central venues plus open studios in the artists’ own (lovely!) houses continues, with the addition of the new Widcombe Social Club, where you will find some familiar faces and their latest work, along with several artists new to the Trail. For anyone unfamiliar with Widcombe’s Art Trail this is a great place to start: there is a huge variety to buy and hanker after – not the amateur paintings you might expect, but hats, pottery, jewellery and lots more.
Just along Widcombe Parade, the popular coffee shop Mús will again be taking part. The perfect spot for refreshments, conveniently situated at the midpoint of the Trail. And if you drop in to the White Hart you may find your picture browsing serenaded by a ukulele band!
Change too at Action on Hearing Loss, brings greater focus on the wonderful art of people the charity supports.
Wherever you visit you will have a warm welcome. As well as enjoying the wide range of work on offer, and the opportunity to discuss the techniques and inspiration with the artists themselves, we know you will also enjoy using the weekend as an opportunity to explore and appreciate Widcombe – a very special part of Bath, where the city meets the countryside, full of history and lovely views, yet only just over the river from the station and Southgate. Pedestrian access from the city is over the footbridge behind Bath Spa station.
Nearest car parks are Southgate, Avon Street and Cricket Ground: Widcombe has some unrestricted street parking on Sundays. Please note that private houses may be unsuitable for wheelchairs and disabled visitors.
The Widcombe Art Trail is run by the Widcombe Association, Bath’s largest and most active residents’ association.

Widcombe Art Trail is a member of Bath Open Studios, a collaborative group representing the Open Studios and Art Trails In Bath. While each trail has its own individual style all share a relaxed and friendly welcome. They take place in different areas of Bath and allow visitors to walk between venues, most of which are the artists’ own homes or studios.
