E17 Georgian Village’s Art Trail Debut

We’ll be popping up at the E17 Georgian Village and spreading the word about their debut appearance on the E17 Art Trail which is happening from 30th May – 14th June 2015. The E17 Art Trail is a community led arts festival playing host to ‘250 events and exhibitions including over 100 artists and open houses’.

The E17 Georgian Village is venue No.97 on the Wood Street Trail. Their discovery events are taking place on the 7th and 14th June 2015 and includes a Children’s Art Trail. You can find out more about the E17 Art Trail here.

FullSizeRender 34We’re particularly excited about taking part because the theme of the art trail is storytelling which is something that Barefoot Books knows a lot about. Barefoot Books has been sharing stories that inspire children and connect families for over twenty years.

Our pop up stall will be at the E17 Georgian Village on 30th May and 6th June during the Art Trail. Why don’t you drop in for a visit.
