Active Trowbridge is having its annual Active Festival in Trowbridge Park on Saturday 14 July from 10am-4pm. Explore Art Trowbridge is joining in the activities with ‘Creative Trowbridge’ which encourages young people and their families to take part in a creative trail starting in Trowbridge Park and working their way around various art activities and venues in the town.

These include Trowbridge Park where Trowbridge Museum have a stand, Court Street Galley, Town Hall Arts and Drawing Projects UK.

Trowbridge Museum will have a stand at the Active Festival in the park and their volunteers will be handing out activity packs to start people off on their discovery trail. You will need to solve clues, take rubbings and collect items in the park before heading off to the first activities at Court Street Gallery where you will use your findings to make decorated paper.

From Court Street Gallery follow the trail to Town Hall Arts to use your decorated paper to take part in a collaborative large-scale papercut drawing inspired by the Active Festival theme of ‘Around the World’, which will then be displayed for visitors to the Town Hall to see. You can also make something to take away on the day.

Next will be an exhibition and drawing workshops at Drawing Projects UK after which families will be encouraged return to the park for the afternoon’s events of the Active Festival which include different sports and activities with plenty of inflatable fun as well.

Creative Trowbridge and Explore Art Trowbridge will be taking place on Saturday 14 July 2018 from 10am. Creative Trowbridge is a free event, and children (and adults) of any age are encouraged to take part. Anyone less than 16 years old should be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Court Street Gallery and Town Hall Arts will be open from 10am-2pm. These are free, drop-in events and there will be refreshments available to buy on the day. Proceeds from the café at Town Hall Arts go towards keeping the Town Hall open and alive with activity.

Drawing Projects UK will be open from 1-4pm for an exhibition of drawings and ceramics from ‘Around the World’. Between 2pm and 4pm there will be a free Drawing Session for all ages supported by Bath Spa University. Refreshments will be available in the Studio Café.
