Chairman Carol Price said: “A splash of colour awaits you as Emsworth comes alive as a hub for the creative arts this weekend. Over 150 artists at 77 local venues will open their doors to art lovers throughout the town in the biggest Emsworth Arts Trail yet on April 29, 30 and May 1.

“From home studios to community spaces, businesses, halls, pubs and churches, nearly all venues are located within a mile of Emsworth town centre. Either by walking or cycling, visitors can look forward to meeting artists and have a chance to purchase their work. A variety of mediums and styles including painting, printmaking, photography, furniture making, weaving, woodturning, ceramics, jewellery and textile art will be on display.

“The Emsworth Arts Trail has grown from strength to strength, bringing many additional visitors to the town; this year promises to be the biggest event yet.”
