The Summer Trifle Launches in Aug – Arts, Crafts, Music

The organisers are delighted to have received a grant from the Big Lottery Fund for this new event at Pickhams in Wilmington, showcasing local artists and bringing art, craft and music opportunities to all those in the community in and around the Weald of Sussex. The event runs from 5 to 20 August and includes workshops, classes, entertainment and exhibitions.

Discover the art of self expression at one of the varied workshops, harness your inner energy with yoga, or relax and enjoy music and theatrical performances. Or have some tea and cake and simply stroll around the gardens taking in the various sculptures and soaking up the restorative force of nature to fire your inspiration. Free entry to the gardens, art & sculpture trail, craft show and some music performances.

Josie Tipler, artist, musician and organiser of the event said “Having run art classes here for a number of years it seemed natural to extend the courses on offer and it has just grown and grown! The lottery funding enables us to commision artists to create works in the gardens.” As well as providing entertainment and the opportunity to learn or develop new skills, Summer Trifle is a place for local talented people to engage with the community.
