BAT2019: the Buxton Biennale, the fifth Buxton Art Trail is the biggest yet! The hugely popular Buxton Art Trail will return during the first weekend of Fringe40 on Saturday July 6 and Sunday July 7. BAT is all set to celebrate Buxton Fringe’s 40th year with a trail of art and wonderment across the town.


The award-winning Buxton Art Trail will present a huge variety of work from artists of all ages from 6 to 96, both professional and amateur and from many community and interest groups based in Buxton.  This huge, free event will include activities to join in and the opportunity to watch artists at work. There will also be plenty of work for sale!


Featuring 36 venues ranging from sheds to art galleries, the trail includes many of the town’s key attractions as well as artist studios, private homes, public spaces, large halls and some hidden away places to discover.


BAT2019 features two BAT HUBS:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

HUB1 is at Buxton Community School where participating schools and adult groups are based. It will also features the life size horse sculpture “To the Wire” and other work by BAT2019 guest artist Paul Tavernor.


HUB2 is at St. Anne’s Community Centre where there will be many out of town artists and Leek School of Art.

Says BAT Chair Linda Rolland:

“The BAT team is really excited to bring together such a huge variety of artistic endeavour for our trail goers to enjoy. We hope townspeople and visitors will visit as many venues as possible over the weekend. Refreshments and a welcome sit down will be available at many of our venues away from the town centre! “
