A free Catford Arts Trail/Open House event, to celebrate creativity in Catford, where local artists and makers will be showing their work in various homes and public spaces in SE6.
Applications to exhibit on the trail will be open from March 16th - May 11th. Please register your interest via our contact page.
For our third year the Catford Arts Team will be building on the success of the last two trails, adding new and exciting activities. Keep an eye on our website and Instagram page for more information!
Last year’s Trail involved 108 artists, 51 venues, 13,000 recorded visits to exhibitors, and several workshops and activities. Will the 2018 Trail be even bigger?!

The First Catford Arts Trail 2016
This was the first ever Arts Trail in Catford organised by five local artists. It took place over two weekends in Sep/Oct 2016 with 75 local artists and makers showing and selling works in their homes, studios and public spaces and included 30 venues in SE6.
Feedback from the 2016 Trail was overwhelmingly positive registering 9,170 visits to venues over the two weekends with an average of 83 visitors per day per venue. So many visitor comments highlighted not only the variety and excellent standard of the art on display but also the generous and friendly welcome they received being invited into people’s homes and businesses.
We also had repeated comments on the positive feeling of togetherness and community generated by the Trail both between the artists and hosts taking part and the visitors themselves. The Trail brought together participants and visitors of all ages and backgrounds and put art in Catford on the map.
