Welcome to the Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail.

Our annual Art Trail is the major event of the year in the area and attracts thousands of returning and happy visitors. The stunning location of the two host villages on the edge of Morecambe Bay makes it a perfect destination for art lovers to absorb the delights on offer. With Open Studios, large group exhibitions, great community involvement and many workshops it provides something for everyone.

The Trail attracts an increasing number and high quality of exhibitors every year, many of who live and work within this extraordinary AONB. Famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery and superb walks, the area is becoming a haven for artists and makers and we are increasingly being tagged the St. Ives of the North!

The 2018 Trail, (always the last weekend in June) will take place Friday 22 June – Sunday 24 June.

Registration for 2018 is open: January 1st – 28th February.
