Coming up…

Watch this space for details of any Gallery Trips or Paintaways with bookings still open. If you have queries about either the London Gallery Weekend or the Buxton Paintaway, you may call Alan Townsend on 01743 236302. If you want to receive details of trips, please make sure you have completed your annual Expression of Interest Form (you can find the current version in the Members Document Library).

We organise regular day trips to galleries as well as residential city breaks and paintaway holidays, for our members and their guests. In recent years we’ve visited cities as far apart as Leeds, London, Bristol, Aberystwyth, Edinburgh and Wolverhampton on our gallery day and weekend excursions. And, we’ve taken our popular ‘paintaway holidays’ to beautiful places like the Lake District, Wales and Norfolk. We design our trips to combine visits to one-off exhibitions with the established and permanent gallery collections, while offering the non-artists in our party the opportunity to explore great British cities and scenery. We always do our best to keep costs to a minimum to keep these activities accessible.

To give you an idea, here’s a flavour of where we’ve been recently…
