Your chance to open studio up to art lovers

College in running for top national awards

Have your say

ARTISTS and creatives are being invited to take part in the annual May Day Arts Trail.

The open studios event has been running in the Havant borough since 2006, and this year, like last, it is being organised by volunteers.

Previously it was run by Havant Borough Council but funding ceased in 2011. Artists themselves decided that it should continue.

The trail is an opportunity for artists to show their work in their own studio, or home, or to take part in groups.

This year’s dates are May 11 and 12 on Hayling Island and the following weekend in Havant, Leigh Park and Waterlooville.

The deadline for entering is January 31 because the organisers intend to produce a brochure.
