Hertford Town Council have once again partnered with Courtyard Arts to run this popular Hertford Arts Trail this year. Designed to showcase and promote the talent of local artists, the 2021 trail will run from Monday 12th April until Saturday 9th May.
To coincide with the re-opening of non-essential retailers, the trail will see over 30 talented artists exhibit their work in prime locations across Hertford town centre. The public can view the pop-up exhibitions free of charge. The Trail is intended to encourage more visitors to the town centre, promote the artists whose work will be on sale and support the venues offering the exhibition space at a time when many businesses will be re-opening their doors for the first time since December 2020.
An array of media will be on display from sculpture to cartoonist, oil on canvas to pottery.
Venue opening times will vary and it is suggested that visitors check location opening times in advance by visiting www.gohertford.co.uk.
A hard copy of the events programme will be available to collect from Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre.
Many businesses are excited to be re-opening their doors to the public, and any visitors to the Arts Trail will need to ensure they adhere to the current Government guidelines whilst in the town centre and participating venues.
Chairman of Hertford Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: “The Hertford Arts Trail is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent of some amazing local artists. The participation of so many artists is going to make exploring the Hertford Arts Trail a must-do activity this spring, as well as be a great way to enjoy all that Hertford town centre has to offer as businesses re-open to customers”.
