Old Town Art Trail 23 August 7pm at the Marriott.

Inside the brochures, you will have seen the list of businesses in Old Town who are part of the Old Town Trail. We thought it might be a good idea to make a trail, and have a look at them.
I'll add a few photos to give you an idea of what we mean:

I have taken Caroline Day's information from Facebook because it says it all:

'Please join us on an evening art trail of just some of the many wonderful Old Town businesses showcasing Swindon Open Studios artists' work. We will begin with a drink at Swindon Marriott Hotel at 7pm, move up into the heart to wander looking in the business windows at the wonderful wares to include our artist's works! We will be stopping for pit stops to purchase alcoholic or non alcoholic drinks, and to chat at The Royal Oak Old Town, The Hop Inn, and 1801, ending with The Beehive Swindon. Times are approximate (apart from the 7pm start time!!) Phone 07788887726 if you are joining us late. Please invite your friends on the event link and RSVP via

What it's all about >>> Many wonderful artists are currently showcasing their Swindon Open Studios artwork in windows or venues in the Old Town businesses.
