Inkwell are excited to be organising the Chapel Allerton Arts Trail for the third year running. A firm fixture in the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival programme, the Art trail offers local artists a chance to exhibit their art and sculptures in various venues in the heart of Chapel Allerton. Many of the artists from Inkwell have also been selected to take part this year.
Highlights of the festival include: The Art trail launch on the 1st September plus various film screenings, poetry, music, dance and arts/ crafts activities happening in various venues throughout the week. The festival’s grand finale with live music stage, craft market and real ale bar starts on Friday 4th September and runs throughout the weekend until winding down on Sunday 6th September.
