Hythe Festival – Art Trail

Participate in the Hythe Festival 2018 Art Trail

The Hythe Festival 2018, and all future festivals, are aiming to focus strongly on Arts and Heritage as its theme, in order to raise the profile of art and artists within and around Hythe.  One of the key events we would like to include with this theme in mind, is an art trail.  A major part of this art trail would be an opportunity for artists in the Hythe and Romney Marsh area to open their studios.  There is also the option to open their gardens as part of a garden safari alongside this.

The route of the trails and venue details will be publicised on the Festival web site, on the festival Facebook page and in a distribution in excess of 10,000 Hythe Festival brochures.  In addition, there would be an A3 leaflet including a map of the areas and studios covered, and all venue details.  Distribution would include all major outlets in and well beyond Hythe.  Publicity for the festival will be in many major and smaller publications.

Artists are invited to open their studios at times chosen by them, between 10.00 and 17.00 on any day from 7th to 15th July.

We are also investigating a workshop/demonstration programme during the art trail. The Festival committee are applying for an Arts Council grant to support the various art related activities with the 2018 festival.  Either from this grant, or from festival sponsors, some payment would be available for holding workshops.

Work sold by artists would be subject to commission of 10%, which would go towards Festival funds. As you will know the Hythe Festival is run totally by volunteers and aims to provide most of its events free or at a nominal cost.  Hence visitors/clients would not be expected to pay to take part in workshops.

Artists would need to be covered by their own insurance.
