The annual Appledore Visual Arts Festival is a cornucopia of inspiration and imagination, a four-day celebration of the best of visual arts with an impressive range of exhibitions, workshops, art-creation events, talks and walks to stimulate and excite everyone.

Between June 7 to 10, Appledore will be alive with the activities of local artists, alongside those of national and international fame, who will be sharing their skills with visitors to this internationally acclaimed event.

The picturesque village of Appledore, at the confluence of the rivers Taw and Torridge, is the perfect setting for this collaboration of creative minds and the occasion is all set to be one to remember.

During the extensive programme are several exhibitions of painting, sculpture and ceramics, artists in residence, workshops on a variety of creative practises, talks by artists, discussions, forums, walks, installations, film, theatre, comedy, and an exhibition of contemporary crafts, all culminating in a vibrant parade along the Quay led by Energia samba band.

In this year of great occasions the Appledore Visual Arts Festival promises to be an event full of excitement for all and one that is not to be missed.
