2022 ART SHOW NOW Closed


See Art Gallery for more photos

Two years ago Hadfield Open Art Show was ready to celebrate its 10thAnniversary but then Lockdown struck and we could not hold the Show in 2020 or in 2021. This year we are, at last, planning to celebrate our 10thAnniversary with a greatly extended programme for all the family, taking place over a full week between Saturday May 28th to Saturday June 4th inclusive at Hadfield Hall and The Craft Barn.  Open weekends from 10am – 4pm and week days  from 11am – 3pm. Free Entry.

All events run concurrently with the Derbyshire Open Arts Programme and it’s hoped that  visitors to studios and galleries will make their way to Hadfield to see the Open Art Show at the Hall and the children’s show at The Craft Barn. For more information about Children’s Exhibition see below.

Entries to the adult Art Show will be welcome from artists across Glossopdale and further afield. Bring your work (up to 3 pieces per adult, £3 each) together with the completed entry form below to Hadfield Hall on Tuesday May 24th between 2pm – 7pm

The Open Art Show at the Hall will be judged by artist Carl Longmate – winner of Derbyshire Open and Adrian Lambert – Professional photographer and Maxine Pigram – textile artist.

Sponsorship: Many thanks go to Derbyshire and High Peak Councillors for their support in sponsoring the event
