Welcome to Derbyshire Open Arts!

AGM Willersley Castle Hotel in Cromford at 13.30 on 13th July 2016

We are pleased to cordially invite you to attend the forthcoming Annual General Meeting of the Derbyshire Open Arts for 2016. We are hoping you will come along to supprt this event which contributes so much to the arts in Derbyshire. Give us your opinions and let us have your feedback and take part in the discussion of topics that influence how the event will run in the future.

We are also hoping that some of you will volunteer for whatever role you feel interested in, however small the job or time limited you are. Your contribution will be very welcome and you do not have to be a part of the committee to be involved.

We look forward to welcoming you with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.


We are a friendly, not for profit arts organisation that holds an arts event across Derbyshire each year.

Our artists stage the event in all sorts of venues and it's a great opportunity for the public to meet them, get to know about their work, and purchase work direct from the artist. The event is free to the general public and is held over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend each year.

Full colour brochures will be available free to the public each April in readiness for our event. There will also be a copy on this website.

We do not operate a selection process as we are an 'open' event; so we invite all artists to apply. We invite the general public to come and see our artists next May.
