Welcome to the HP Arts Trail 2023


Welcome to the HP  Arts Trail which starts on 9th June and runs until 25th June

This year is our 9th Arts Trail and the Arts and Culture Team (ARC) of the Highams Park Planning Group are excited to be presenting a veritable smorgasbord of exhibitions, classes, performances and displays by practitioners from across the whole spectrum of arts and culture. The trail is packed with lots of work by local artists and there are lots of great events lined up for you to enjoy.

You can find out what’s happening during the trail by clicking on the link to the Arts trail brochure on this link Arts Trail Booklet_2023_web version

You can pick up a printed copy of the brochure from: Hale End Library, Humphry’s Café, The Stow Brothers, V and A Books or one of the many participating shops or businesses around Highams Park.

The Arts Trail kicks off on the evening of Friday 9th June, with the ARC Launch Party at the Function Room. On Saturday 10th June you can join a walking tour of the open studios on the Trail. Over the next two weeks you’ll be able to visit artists’ studios, listen to live performances at Highams Park Live, make clay pots, carve stone, weave a basket, and enjoy some great classical music too.

On the second weekend you have the Vintage Market at Hale End Library, with vintage stalls and book signings, kids’ activities and music from Harmony E4 Choir.

The ARC team are all volunteers from the Highams Park Planning Group and we give our time freely because we see the value in creating and celebrating arts and culture, bringing people together and celebrating this unique community.

We would like to extend our grateful thanks to The Stow Brothers for sponsoring the Arts Trail, all the artists and creatives, who have taken the time to get involved, and all the shops and businesses that have given space and time to exhibit work or host events. We literally couldn’t do it without you!

We hope you enjoy this year’s trail, if you would like to get involved in the next one, you can contact us at arc.highamspark@gmail.com
