The fourth Southwold Arts Festival begins this Saturday (June 24) with a carnival-style atmosphere kick-starting a range of events – showcasing music, drama, poetry, visual art, photography, dance, talks and literature.

And as part of the festival, eight artists living and working in Reydon are again opening their studios to the public this weekend.

An open studio trail will run from 11am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday – and over this weekend you will be able to see where their work is created, and discuss the inspiration and processes behind it.

This is a great opportunity to view a wide range of artwork, in a variety of media – including oils, acrylics, watercolour, pastels and printmaking. Entry is free, with no obligation to purchase the works.
