The annual Leigh Art Trail has become an important part of the town’s cultural calendar. Now in its 20th year, the 2017 event is being held from Saturday 10th – 17th June, and will showcase the talents of over 70 selected artists and designer-makers in around 55 venues in this little corner of Essex. In what has now become typical art-trail tradition, in the region of 15,000 visitors will be able to view the work free of charge in the makers’ studios, local galleries, shops and restaurants.

The amazing diversity of work includes painting, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, photography, printmaking and jewellery produced by artists living and working in Leigh and the surrounding area.

This year sees the return of Sculpture Street, a community project where for one weekend only (June 10th-11th) an ordinary quiet residential street in the town will be transformed into a street of inspiration, showcasing artists work in the residents gardens.  The launch event of the trail is on 8th June with many other activities during the week including guided walks, performances and artists workshops.
