Hadleigh Art Trail

This year’s Trail in September promises to be the most exciting and engaging yet, with something to inspire everyone. Over 30 artists will present their work and creative talents to the public in venues across Hadleigh, stretching from the Hadleigh Park and Salvation Army Hub Café to St. James the Less church…and beyond! Hadleigh Art Trail is proud of its community links with a range of art clubs and community arts organisations as well as individual artists – many of whom live, work or meet in Castle Point and are showcasing a diverse mix of fine art, photography, sculpture, poetry, music and more.

Hadleigh Art Trail is artist-led and community focussed. Started in 2011, Hadleigh Art Trail has become an annual community event popular with artists, local businesses, organisations, residents and visitors.
Our partner venue Hadleigh Old Fire Station and its multi-use community space takes centre stage again this year hosting an ‘All Trail’ exhibition featuring work from each Trail artist under one roof – open 10am – 5pm daily throughout the Trail. Home to professional artists, photographers as well as heritage and community groups – HOFS is a vibrant community hub housed in this iconic building.In association with a number of local organisations and partner venues, Hadleigh Art Trail boasts a full programme of FREE events and activities for all ages including:Look out for a range of ‘happenings’ in the town centre during Trail week

Weekend inSeptember Opening times vary for each artist, so please make sure you double check entries on the listings. If in doubt, or if you are travelling a long distance, we would advise you to contact the artist and confirm your visit. Please phone all artists who specify ‘by appointment only’ before visiting. Open studios aims to provide greater opportunity for the public to access the visual arts as well as promote the great wealth of local visual artists in Colchester and Tendring.
Colchester offers many walking and cycling art trails across the district and town centre. Why not discover some of the area’s beautiful landscapes whilst you’re visiting, or find out more about where you live, with some of our suggestions below?
The Painter’s Trail around the Dedham Vale, inspiration for John Constable, takes you through a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and uses a mixture of mainly quiet roads, cycle paths and well-surfaced tracks. The full circuit is about 69 miles and is designed to be completed in two to three days, but there is also plenty of scope for shorter rides. Be sure to take inspiration from the Haywain view at Flatford and fortify yourself with tea and cake in the many tea rooms in ‘Constable Country’.
