This year, Waltham Forest will be the first ever London Borough of Culture, and we’re proud that the Arts Trail will be a big part of that this summer.

As ever it is the artists and participants that make the Trail and we hope the spotlight on the borough gives an even wider platform to show your work.

Whether you’re an established artist who wants to support other creatives, a young artist looking for an opportunity or someone who just wants to have fun being creative and meet some like-minded souls, then there’s a place on the Trail for you.

Registration for 2019 will open shortly

The closing date is April 14th.

In order to register you will need to:

1. Find a venue

You can display your work anywhere in Leytonstone so long as you have permission from the owner or manager of the venue. Consider cafes, shops, galleries, studios, workshops, your own home or even outdoors.

2. Prepare a suitable image and text description

Your image should be 1000 pixels along the longest edge, in jpeg or png format and no bigger than 500kb. Good images attract visitors to your show via the website and Guide so don’t leave your photography til the last minute… Submit your images as part of your online registration.

3. Register online here

Later this month  you’ll be able to register and pay your entry fee here; expect to pay around £25 for listing a small show and £60 for an A6 ad for a large show. Entry fees are used for production costs of the Trail guide and website.
