Saturday the 14th of September saw the first ever Cloth Road Arts Fair.

Set in the impressive surrounds of Emmanuel’s Yard Trowbridge, alongside the fantastic Weavers Market, with a range of events running at Town Hall Arts, The Court Street Gallery, Trowbridge Museum and Drawing Projects UK, as part of Explore Arts Trowbridge and Heritage Open Days, there was a buzz in the air in Trowbridge.

The sun was shining as members of the public were treated to an array of stalls, demonstrations and workshops from a diverse range of very talented Artists and Artisans, whilst being provided with delicious coffee, cakes and mocktails by the wonderful hosts at Emmanuel’s Yard and entertained by a backdrop of live music.

“The art fair has been absolutely stunning. It’s absolutely fantastic.” – Sue Riley, on visiting the Arts Fair.
