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.

Coming up…

Please note that the Gallery Day Trip to Coventry in November is now fully booked; if you have already booked and need the Booking Form for details of the trip, you can find it here, but we are unable to accept any further bookings. Thank you.

However, it’s still not too late to join our 2020 London Gallery Weekend or Buxton Paintaway…

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