Venues

We have some awesome venues for you to exhibit in, we have allocated artists and makers to each venue to ensure an even distribution of different styles in each venue. This means that visitors get a unique experience at every location.

 

We try to ensure that artists are not in the same venue twice in sucession and to ensure that everyone is treated equally and fairly, everyone has to take a turn in each location at some point. If you were in one venue last year, you will not be there again, sorry!

Curious about the venues? Please find some information below!

No one can miss the beautiful church situated smack bang on the middle of the town.

Whilst it is not the warmest venue, despite the vast space, the displays of art feel quite intimate. It is also a light and open venue

We provide 3 boards per artist with plinths if needed. There are also tables but you will need your own table cloths.

Additionally, with church services occurring on the Sunday, you have a guaranteed footfall!

A favourite for many artists. Kingshill house is slightly outside the town centre on Kingsdown just off Kingshill Lane. As we take over the entire house for the weekend, artists are placed over the two floors. It is a very communal environment and many visitors like to start or finish the trail here, so it gets plenty of footfall.

Parking is available outside Kingshill House and there is a small lift to the first floor if needed

All the rooms are well lit and large so plenty of room for everybody

A venue located on Kingshill Road, this is another well-lit space and is close to the centre so will get plenty of footfall!

Access is via a ramp for artists and visitors. However, you can’t park directly outside when loading or unloading, so you will need to be able to carry your work from nearby. Parking is available in the side streets and further up the road.

Also located at the Dursley tabernacle. The upper rooms are located up the steps in the photo shown above! This is another well-lit space and is close to the centre so will get plenty of footfall!

Another church located smack bang in the centre of Dursley, it gets plenty of visitors and each artist gets a clear allocated U-shaped space with a table top. They have some white table cloths available but if you have your own please bring them along

The church have their own display boards which they are happy for you to hang your work either via hooks and wires from the top of the boards or from hooks nailed into the boards (i.e. Ikea 3 pin white hooks, they have some available)

We provide hooks and wires but it is always useful if you have extra fishing line.

During the event the church runs a café with tea/coffee and lunches available. The start time on Sunday may be slightly later due to morning service but Phil usually uses the art as part of his sermon, so plenty of attention!

A new addition in 2018, the Tashi centre is a fantastic venue located on Water street.

It has an open courtyard so an excellent place for 3D artists, the rooms are light and bright and show off the work brilliantly.

The only downside are the stairs, so be prepared to carry your work (and the boards) up the small staircases! We have rails in situ ready for the wires and hooks which we provide.

Toilets available, parking in the adjacent car park

Another of our smaller venues, as it functions daily as an art gallery, it requires little to no preparation other than turning up on the day to set up.

This is the only venue which facilitates those who are unable to steward their own work, as such, if you wish to exhibit here and can’t steward your own work due to other commitments, please let us know ASAP!

New for 2021! A small well lit venue, in the new function room of the King's Head. With plenty of potential foot traffic, it should prove to be a popular spot!

Due to the windows, there is limited hanging space so boards will be provided. For those requiring a table, this can be provided as well. Please discuss your requirements with your Venue Manager to ensure the venue is set up for you!

Parking is available across the road in the main town car park and as it's in a pub, toilets and food/drink are available.
