ARTISTS are being sought for a unique exhibition that will showcase their work.

Every year since 2006 there has been an Arts Trail throughout Havant borough, with artists and craftspeople opening up their homes and studios for a weekend for the public to visit.

This year the trail takes place on May 12 and 13 for Havant and May 19 and 20 for Leigh Park and Waterlooville.

Emsworth artists will showcase their work on May 5 and 6 and May 12 and 13.

Sue Kruk, one of the organisers, from Hayling Island, said: ‘When the council broke the news that it could no longer fund the trail, the artists themselves were adamant that they did not want this event to fizzle out.’

For more information about the trail call Sue on (023) 9246 9104.
