Saltaire Arts Trail

Call for houses

Have you ever wanted to decorate your house with the finest quality art and craft from around Yorkshire? Now here’s your chance, if you live in Saltaire or its surrounding streets! The Saltaire Festival Arts Group is wanting to expand the arts programme at this year’s Saltaire Festival, and we need your help. We are looking to use around 10 residents’ houses as galleries to exhibit and sell fine art and craft. This is an idea taken from the long-running and hugely successful ‘Open Houses’ that feature in the Brighton Festival. We want to create wonderful environments where the cushions on the sofa, the paintings on the wall, the vases on the mantelpiece, the cups and saucers on the kitchen table, are all for sale.

  • The dates we are looking for are the weekends of the 8th/9th and 15th/16th September.
  • The opening times can be flexible to suit you.
  • Insurance, both personal liability and the cover of the artwork, will be paid for, and all artwork provided.
  • You can keep a percentage of the sales that take place in your house, and if you serve tea and cakes, you can keep those profits, too!

If you would like to participate in this exciting venture,
