Event Type

Each event is listed under one or more of the these three terms. Events are scheduled one-off, or occasionally repeated but only at a particular time on a particular day(s). Exhibits are displays of visual art that are available for the entire festival and are held in shops, hotels and cafés. Exhibits are open for the hours of their particular venue. An exception to this are exhibits that are held in Art8 Studios which are only available from Thursday 11th until Sunday 14th April. Workshops are events that are designed for visitors to take part in. They range from craft workshops to dance and language classes.



Where possible, events for Art8 are free of charge. Where this has not been possible, a nominal charge has been put in place. To help keep these charges down, many events have been subsidised by Art8. All entry fees taken by these events is put straight back into the festival which will help make 2014 even better!



Age Rating

If an event is aimed at a specific age group it will be shown on the events individual page.


Outside Event

Some of the events during Art8 are based outside. Obviously, the great British weather may have other ideas and force us to retreat into an alternative venue. Many of the outside events have been given an alternative venue but for some it has not been possible. If an event is outside it's alternative venue will be displayed.


Contact Details

Where possible we have included details of the artist and venue that are involved in the event. These will be listed if available.
