Art lovers are in for a treat with the return of our Widcombe Art Trail weekend, August 28th-29th. This year Widcombe Art trail 2021 is going to be a bit different, due to Covid restrictions. We have been carefully planning so we can welcome visitors as safely as possible at each of our sites. You can still expect some nice chats with the artists themselves, we have some newcomers as well as the longstanding favourites.
This year’s venues include a new and welcome addition: The Natural Theatre Company, Widcombe Social Club and St Matthews Church.
Details of opportunities to get involved including workshops and demonstrations along the trail will follow shortly.
Covid Health and Safety Requirements
A team will manage the number of attendees and routes will be marked on the floor. Even if restrictions have been lifted we have to be cautious as Covid will still be around. Artists and visitors will be asked to wear masks, and their temperatures may be taken on arrival. We may also be required to ask people to check in for track and trace either manually or using the NHS app.
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: private houses may be unsuitable for wheelchairs and disabled visitors.
Enjoy the Trail, and do let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
The Widcombe Art Trail part is sponsored 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.
