New Mills Festival (2017) – The Big Weekend


I’m pleased to announce that I am returning to the New Mills Festival, taking part in the Big Weekend – 22nd – 24th September.

The last weekend of the two-week festival –

The Art Trail includes a “Big Weekend”, timed to coincide with the hugely popular Lantern Procession finale, which attracts an audience of more than 14,000 to the town. The Big Weekend sees artists and venues across New Mills open their doors to host pop-up exhibitions, open studios, workshops and demonstrations, and arts and crafts markets.

More information coming soon!


New Mills Art Trail (2017) Call Out


It’s that time if year again. Personally I get excited when I see this open call. New Mills opens up as gallery for two weeks in September culminating in the Big Weekend and Lantern parade. I encourage you to submit your proposal here. The organisers are passionate about the festival, working hard to curate a festival that gets bigger and bigger each year. That’s partly why I keep going back, I’ve also made some friends and lots of happy memories.
