Anyone living in the 01273 telephone area may take part as a venue in the Artists Open Houses festival.

Those living outside the area may also take part as a guest artist exhibiting their work in some one else’s Open House. You may like to sign up to Artist Seeking Houses so that host venues can see your work and invite you to exhibit with them:
