Town centre arts trail launched

Monday 12 April 2021

As the town centre reopens for business, Hertford Town Council and Courtyard Arts are launching a 4-week arts trail to showcase and promote local artists.

The trail will see over 30 artists exhibit their work in prime locations across Hertford town centre to encourage more visitors in to the town and to promote the artists. Many of the works will be on sale and support the venues offering the exhibition space at a time when many businesses will be re-opening their doors for the first time since December 2020.

An array of artforms will be on display from sculpture to cartoons, oil on canvas to pottery.<.p>

A hard copy of the events programme will be available to collect from Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre.

Many businesses are excited to be re-opening their doors to the public, and any visitors to the arts trail will need to ensure they adhere to the current Government guidelines whilst in the town centre and participating venues.

Chairman of Hertford Town Council's Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr. Jane Sartin, said: "The Hertford Arts Trail is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent of some amazing local artists. The participation of so many artists is going to make exploring the Hertford Arts Trail a must-do activity this spring, as well as be a great way to enjoy all that Hertford town centre has to offer as businesses re-open to customers"

Hertford Arts Trail Associate Partners, Courtyard Arts said: "We are delighted to again be partnering with Hertford Town Council for the 2021 Hertford Arts Trail. The Trail offers talented artists from the region the opportunity to exhibit, share and market their work as part of this event. It will be wonderful to see the town transformed by their creativity."
