How to use your favourites!

As part of the redevelopment of our website in 2019, we introduced a new favouriting system that now allows you to save which artists you'd like to visit and helps to plan your journey around Derbyshire. Once you've saved your favourites, you can create trails between the artists. These can be customised depending on whether you're driving, cycling or walking and can help you find the quickest route between your favourites.

All you need to do is create an account for this website with either your email address, Facebook or Twitter logins and begin saving!

Follow these instructions and start to plan today which artists you'd like to visit over the Spring Bank Holiday!

Note - you must be logged in to save any favourites.

Step 4 - View your favourites

Once you've saved your favourites artists you can view them at http://www.derbyshireopenarts.co.uk/user. Alternatively, you can click the My Favourites link at the top of every page.

Note - you must be logged in to view your favourites.

Step 5 - Create your trails

If you've saved at least one artist, you can begin building your custom trails. You can either view the trail page at http://www.derbyshireopenarts.co.uk/directions or alternatively, you can click the My Trails link at the top of every page (see image above.)

Note - you must be logged in to create trails.

Once you've visited the Trails page, you will see the below table and all of your favourites listed. Choose your start and optional end point as well as how you want to travel during your trail. If you'd like the quickest route between the points click the tickbox, otherwise you can drag the arrow icon on the left up and down to change the order of the artists. You also don't have to create a trail of all of your favourites and can use the include tickbox on the right to choose which artists you want to incorporate.
