On Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June 2015, Six Streets hosted 40 artists and makers displaying work in their own homes or those of friends and neighbours, as well as at Boradway Baptist church hall. Exhibitors include painters, printers, textile artists, ceramicists, photographers, jewellery-makers and an instrument maker.
There was also a History Trail with information about the effect that World War I had on the area - the local men who fought and the women who volunteered as nurses.
The weather was hot and sunny on the Saturday so the pop up cafes provided very welcome breaks to tired feet - lucky people who timed it right had a chance to listen to local musicians at different venues.
Many of the yarn bombed trees on Wheeldon Ave are still here to be enjoyed - the theme was Under the Sea
Around 800 adults came to the event and feedback was very positive. The organisers dis a great job - so thank you to them on behalf of everyone who enjoyed the event. Thank you as well to the History people who produced such professional research.
There will not be an Arts Trail in 2016 as it is a huge event to organise but hopefully people will volunteer to put the work in and we will be able to enjoy another Arts trail in 2017.
