Derby's Six Streets Arts Trial announced for 24-25 June

Residents of the Six Streets area of Derby will open up their homes and gardens once again for the third Six Streets Arts Trail on the weekend of Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 June.

The Arts Trail will see over 30 artists and makers displaying work in their own homes or those of friends and neighbours.

Exhibitors include painters, printers, textile artists, ceramicists, photographers and jewellery makers.

The Trail is free and open for all from 10am – 5pm on both days. Homes taking part in the trail will display balloons. 

Refreshments will be available from pop-up cafes around the trail and local musicians will provide impromptu entertainment along the way. 

Eighteen trees along Wheeldon Avenue will be 'yarn bombed' - decorated with colourful knitted and crocheted decorations created by local residents, schools, nurseries and community groups.

“The Arts Trail is a fantastic way for us to celebrate the creativity and real sense of community which has built up in the Six Streets area,” said Rachel Clarke, one of the local residents organising the event.

“Our last trail in 2015 attracted a great crowd and I think we delivered something for every taste at affordable prices. Visitors can expect a similarly vibrant mix this year with artists from both Six Streets and the wider Derby and Derbyshire areas.

“There’s also the period architecture of the Six Streets area – and for many of us, half the fun is looking around other people’s homes!”

The Six Streets area is off Kedleston Road, Derby DE22 and includes Bromley Street, Park Grove, Wheeldon Avenue, White Streets and Parkfields Drive.

Visitors can find out details about the artists and locations at or on Twitter at @SixStreetsArts
