On 8 September, to coincide with Heritage Open Day, Town Hall Arts will be taking part in Explore Art Trowbridge (EAT). EAT events showcase the cultural offer in Trowbridge, and promote activities at Drawing Projects UK, Trowbridge Museum and Court Street Galleries as well as Town Hall Arts.
At Town Hall Arts there will be guided tours of the building which will include areas not always open to the public such as the basement Cells. We also have an Artist in Residence, Angel Greenham, who joins us on our second Summer Residency Exchange with artists from Bath Artists Studios, plus an exhibition in our main gallery which has a rolling programme of art exhibitions throughout the year.
Tours will be available at 11am, 12 noon and 1pm. There is no charge and you can just turn up but if you want to secure a place then please do book.
Victorian Tea Party - Summer Residency Exchange
Join Angel Greenham between 2 - 4pm for a tea party with a difference at Town Hall Arts! Angel has been exploring the history of the building throughout her residency in the Basement Cells. Now she invites you to explore the Victorian tradition of the tea party within our magnificent building, which was built to commemorate Queen Victoria in 1887-9.
Exhibition – Open 2018
The exhibition in the main gallery will be the Town Hall Arts ‘Open 2018’, featuring a variety of works from over 40 artists.
