Widcombe’s 10th Art Trail 14th – 15th May 2016
In 2016 we celebrated Widcombe’s 10th Art Trail! To mark the event we had a party in the Widcombe Social Club on Friday 13 May. This was busy and successful evening, well attended by exhibitors and their guests. A special presentation was made thanking Sarah Lewis for organising the Art Trail so well for the past 10 years.

In 2016 the Widcombe Art Trail was a great success with 60 exhibitors and significant contributions to charity. Many congratulations to Usha Pearce for raising approximately £200 for the charity Sound Seekers from sale of refreshments and having at least 245 people through the door! Other venues also had refreshments for good causes. St Matthew’s raised £498 for their Fabric Fund, and Violet Bank Farm collected for Dorothy House.

The annual Art Trail hopes to involve the whole community. In 2016 as well as many private homes and studios, two local hostelries, a cafe, a shop, a school, a church, and the brand new Widcombe Social Club are involved, and at the the Bath workshop for Action on Hearing Loss twelve of the talented tutors are showing their own work alongside work by their clients.
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. The footbridge behind the railway station is a handy route.
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.
The 2016 Widcombe Art Trail is sponsored by the Bath office of Knight Frank.
