Devon Life Mention

Art Trail is well on its way to reaching a far wider audience, as once again this year, we are thrilled to have had a mention in the May issue of Devon Life Magazine.

The feature covers a number of Art Trails during the month of May but we feel our very own Ilfracombe Art Trail has held its own, being the first to be mentioned in the article and with it featuring the work of one of our artists, Marion Elmes.

Thanks to all our guests and ‘players’ and of course to The Ilfracombe Carlton Hotel for kindly hosting the event for us.
Grateful thanks to our wonderful sponsors; Majestic Wine Warehouse, Barnstaple for putting up the quiz winning prize; quiz maestro, Lindsey Adderley; Name that Tune gee-tar man, Mike Thomas, and all the Trail artists who so generously donated such amazing raffle prizes!!
