Town centre arts trail opens

Thursday 7 April 2022

A month long arts trail opens on Saturday 9th April with works by local artists exhibited in town centre premises.

The trail is part of the annual Hertford Arts Festival - designed to showcase and promote the local arts and culture in the county town.

An Arts Trail features during the month-long festival, where artists will exhibit and sell work across  the town centre. The pop-up exhibitions are free to visit. The Art Trail is intended to encourage more  visitors into Hertford town centre, promote the artists whose work will be on sale and support the  venues offering the exhibition space. 

An array of art will be on display from sculpture to cartoons, oil on canvas to pottery. 

A hard copy of the events programme will be available to collect from Hertford Town and Tourist  Information Centre at the beginning of the trail.
Chairman of Hertford Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: "The Hertford Arts Festival is a great opportunity to experience a variety of art-related events in the  town. The Art Trail is an art exhibition with a difference, and a fantastic collaboration between local  businesses and artists. Whether you enjoy viewing the art works over the course of the month as  you do your shopping, or complete the full trail in one go, make sure to visit all 21 art locations."
