Hertford arts TRAIL 2019

The centrepiece of the annual Hertford Arts Festival, the Arts Trail splashes the work of artists throughout town. For one month, pop-up exhibition spaces appear across Hertford – from retailers to bars and cafes; beauty salons to gift shops.

Participating artists have each been teamed up with a venue to showcase their work for the duration of the trail.
