Local businesses and venues have signed up in droves to have art work displayed in their windows and premises. Information on how artists can apply to display their work on the clicky.
New Mills Festival is delighted to launch an open call for four commissioned works to form a central part of the festival’s Art Trail and Big Weekend for 2021! The Trail forms part of New Mills Festival, taking place from the 10th to the 26th September.
Back, by popular demand! New Mills Festival will host a poetry trail filled with verse ranging from the silly to profound. Accepted poets will:

- Be invited to read their work at a live event on Saturday 18th Sept
- Be listed in the trail map distributed across the town
- And NEW for 2021 - 5 works will be chosen to be printed on large scale panels to be displayed in prominent sites across the town!
