Registering for the Artists Open Houses

The Artists Open Houses (AOH) normally has two festivals each year: one during the city’s May festival season, the other in the lead up to Christmas. Due to the unexpected circumstances of COVID-19, the May 2020 Festival was not able to go ahead and has been rescheduled for Autumn/Winter 2020. The four-week festival will incorporate aspects of both the (rescheduled) AOH May festival and the AOH Christmas festival, offering Christmas shopping opportunities as well great art for buyers and collectors.

Taking Part in AOH

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 someone 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:
