Bonsall Arts Trail
18th - 19th June 2022

2022 Trail – Applications Open

Yes, the real trail is on and confirmed for next year 18th – 19th June 2022. We have moved from the planned Easter weekend to the summer because we anticipate more of the event taking place in the open and we don’t want to freeze! Our existing artists are already registering their places and marquees and other venues are being organised. There’ll be plenty of other events too that weekend with at least one very sought-after band already booked, and a great selection of food and drink. Watch this space for plenty more news.

2022 Trail Membership


Applications are now open for the trail exhibition and all the other Bonsall Arts Trail community activities for 2022. The application will cost £10, and if accepted we will ask you for a fee of £40 to cover exhibition at the trail and membership for 2022.

Applications are made through curatorspace:
You will need to register on the site (free) to make your application.

Application for New Artists


Existing artists will not have to re-apply through CuratorSpace. Instead we will be asking for a £40 annual subscription. This will cover your exhibition fee for the 2022 event as well as any activities you would like us to promote throughout the year. 2020/2021 saw our popular artist of the week promotions on Facebook and our website, as well as our hugely successful online shop, but we’re sure that there’s many more ideas out there.
So for existing artists – if you’d like to join Bonsall Arts Trail Association for 2022 we will need £40 by the end of November 2021 (link below). This would represent your annual membership sub for 2022.

Bonsall Arts Trail

Bonsall Arts Trail is an annual curated arts trail for artists from Derbyshire and surrounding counties held in the beautiful Peak District village of Bonsall. Its inaugural event in 2020 was postponed due to the crisis, however was back in virtual form during Easter Weekend 2021 as an online shop with over 40 professional artists and almost 1000 works on sale. Now we’re going to be back in physical form in 2022!
Each one of our artists is featured weekly as Artist of the Week, with plans to have artists featured in a video are underway, but in the meantime we are pleased to announce the publication of our Bonsall Arts Trail Book. Available to buy now – see above.
Meanwhile there’s lots more news coming up, so do visit this site every week and our Facebook and Instagram pages as we regularly update and feature the work of our artists.
