Secret Severn Art Trail coming up
Posted on: Sep 21, 2018 Blog
We will be hitting the art trail in Ironbridge later this month as we proudly sponsor a major event for the area.
The Secret Severn Art Trail is being held in and around Ironbridge from September 28 to October 7 and will showcase the work of many talented artists.
The team here at Nock Deighton are delighted to be lead sponsor for the event and we are really looking forward to it.
Ironbridge is one of the most visited areas in the area with thousands of tourists flocking to the town during the course of the year.
There is so much to see and do and the Secret Severn Art Trail is another extremely popular attraction. Nock Deighton is proud to be part of the local community and support events and projects whenever we can.
When the organisers of the Secret Severn Art Trail approached us about being lead sponsor of this year’s event we were delighted to accept. We are expecting about 30 artists to be displaying their work around Ironbridge over 10 days and are told the event will bring in more than 2,000 visitors.
The idea of the event is to raise awareness of local artists and showcase their work in the form of a trail around the town, with a number of local businesses taking part.
It is something that has been well supported in Ironbridge previously and is an important addition to the town’s calendar. There are a lot of talented artists locally, producing paintings, photography, ceramics, illustrations, glass, jewellery, textiles and prints and so on, and the idea of a trail seemed a good idea in Ironbridge because there simply wasn’t one there.
This is an ideal opportunity to see the amazing work produced by these talented people and, hopefully, it will encourage others to follow suit. For more information about the Secret Severn Art Trail visit the website.
