Kirkstall Art Trail is a free event which aims to inspire local engagement with the arts and celebrate the creative talent in and around Kirkstall. It is organised entirely by local volunteers with a passion for arts and community. This year’s trail will run on the 21st and 22nd July.

Each year a wide variety of venues across Kirkstall open their doors and become exhibition spaces and workshop venues for just 2 days. Last year’s venues included Kirkstall Abbey, a unit at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park, a camper van, an allotment, an office, a pub and a selection of private residences and studios. In 2017 we had over 1000 visitors over the weekend, taking part in workshops, talking to artists and exploring the area!

This year our main site will be Kirkstall Abbey where the committee will be on hand to welcome visitors and volunteers.

For the 2018 event, we are now  looking for volunteers to help prepare resources for the art trail before the event and/or for general support on or before the day – if you want to get involved, please email kirkstallarttrail@outlook.com.

We’re really looking forward to this year’s trail, and we hope to see you there!
