Six Streets Arts Trail prepares to open doors to visitors for 2017

The Six Streets Arts Trail is preparing to get underway and open its doors to visitors for this year’s event, taking place on 24 and 25 June 2017.

Residents in the six streets area of the city – located between Kedleston Road and Duffield Road –¬†will host displays by artists and makers including painters, printers, textile artists, ceramicists, photographers and jewellery-makers.

Forty artists in total will be displaying their work and there is an additional architecture and heritage trail, researched by the Six Streets History Group in their award-winning Heritage Lottery- funded project. The area has an important history in the city and the self-guided tour looks from its time in 1899 as the Parkfields House estate, through to connections to India and even the use of cellars for shelter from air raids during WWII.

With a strong sense of community and local identity the annual Six Streets Arts Trail invites others to come and explore the area.

Six Streets Arts Trail exhibitions are located on Bromley Street, Park Grove, Statham Street, Wheeldon Avenue, White Street, Kedleston Road and at Broadway Baptist Church and participating buildings will be marked with balloons outside. Events run from 10am to 5pm on Saturday 24 June and Sunday 25 June 2017, and entry is free.
