Cancellation of Patchings & Nottingham Day Trip 2020

In the light of the latest Government guidance concerning the developing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation we have taken the decision to cancel our upcoming Day Trip to Patchings & Nottingham.

Cancellation of Buxton Paintaway 2020

We are in the process of contacting members involved in this event, as unfortunately for the same reasons, we have also had to take the decision to cancel for this year. We hope that we will be able to enjoy a Paintaway together in 2021.

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. If you want to receive details of trips when they are announced, please make sure you have completed your annual Expression of Interest Form (you can find the current version in the Members Document Library).

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