Open Studios ~ Spring 2022

Welcome to the brand spanking new Bacton-on-Sea Art Trail website.


Spring has sprung and Bacton's artists will be flinging the doors wide open to welcome the public in once again to view what they have been up to since last we met -  you can see examples of their work by using the menu at the top of the page (that's the three bars if you are on a mobile).

There are four artists taking part in the first Bacton trail this year. All will be open on the following dates:

Saturday 28th May and Sunday 29th May

Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June

We can be found in the following locations:

  1. Maggie Simmons: Art Studio, Brightside, Kimberley Road, Bacton NR12 0EN

  2. Nick White: The Coach House at The Old Vicarage, Church Road, Bacton NR12 0JP

  3. Jo Arnold and Mary Richardson will be showing together in Mary's studio at The Cottage, Hennessey’s Loke, Edingthorpe Green, NR28 9SS

It is unlikely that many people will be walking the entire length of our trail as it is quite a distance and most walkers will probably only be doing the part that runs over the ridge where the skylarks nest between Maggie and Nick. So you will be pleased to know that if you wish to drive, it is very easy to park at all three locations. But do have a look at the walk-the-trail page for some interesting info about the neighbourhood.

Despite the constant threat of covid, last year was very good for all of us, I think. The Spring shows came at the end of lockdown and everyone was eager to get out to enjoy the fantastic weather and see other people! Then the Autumn show came at the same time as the petrol shortage and that seemed to mean that any visitors to Bacton were more or less stuck here and made the most of things by getting a dose of the local art. Let's hope that this year we can finally usher covid to somewhere safe and that the sun will shine on all our endeavours despite the terrible events unfolding in Eastern Europe.

The Around Bacton page gives details of some of the local businesses - so if you want fresh sausages delivered to your door or need to know where to buy those last minute gifts then have a look here...and if you are a local business who would like to be included then please get in touch.

The Bacton Art Trail is part of the wider North Norfolk Open Studios and we urge you to take a look at the mother website: to get a taste of the huge variety of work available for view.
