Chew Valley Arts Trail 2016...

The next Chew Valley Arts Trail will be held over the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October 2016


The Chew Valley Arts Trail is an annual, privately run, weekend event.  For the past thirteen years it has been a showcase for the creative abilities of people who live or work in the beautiful rural areas of Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and into the Mendips. The trail is set between the A38 and A37 main roads, not far from Bristol Airport and just a few miles south of Bristol. It encompasses the famous visitor areas of Chew Valley Lake (including the tearoom/fish restaurant 'Salt and malt' and Blagdon fishing lake, Barrow Tank Reservoirs and Stanton Drew Stones, it is also close to the World Heritage City of Bath, Cheddar and its Caves and the City of Wells.

Part of the experience is for visitors to use the facilities of our local businesses, pubs, cafes and restaurants.  You may need to book lunch at some of the pubs as it will be a busy weekend. Some of our venues may also offer light refreshments. Please see individual villages for details of refreshments and whether or not venues have disabled access.

How to get around: By car and by cycle and some parts on foot.  Cycle routes including the Avon cycle Way are signposted.
