New Mills Arts Trail


11 Sep 2020 to 27 Sep 2020

The Art Trail (11 - 27 Sept) and Big Weekend (25 - 27 Sept) form part of the New Mills Festival which takes place across New Mills, Derbyshire from the 11th to the 27th September 2020.

In 2019 more than seventy local businesses and venues signed up to host artists' work in their windows and premises.

Artists can apply for one or more of the opportunities see

Submission is FREE. However, there is a £20 charge* made to successful artists for inclusion in the Art Trail promotional material.

*additional charges may apply depending on your choice of venue. Please consult the individual submission pages for further information.

Alongside applications from artists for the smaller shop windows the organisers are particularly interested in hearing from artists who would like to tackle one of the bigger display spaces, either for a larger installation or for a display from a group. Please email to discuss your ideas. There is a small materials budget available for these spaces.

The Art Trail includes a "Big Weekend", which sees artists and venues across New Mills open their doors to host pop-up exhibitions, open studios, workshops and demonstrations, and arts and crafts markets.
If you would like to submit a proposal or work to be curated in the Pop Up Venues please consult the list below for links to full details including opening times, dates and costs. Then complete the submission form, entering your choice(s) of venue.

The Art Trail is not themed, however the theme for the New Mills Festival this year is "Vision". Proposals which respond to this topic will be welcomed.
