HPPG’s Arts & Culture Team (ARC) have been working hard behind the scenes with a levy of local volunteers to put together the HP Art Trail, a comprehensive programme of events and exhibitions in and around Highams Park. Full details are in the fabulous 12 page guide can be seen by clicking on this link ARC_Booklet_2019 – Final

The Art Trail is packed with lots of great work by local artists and the Wild About Highams Park animal sculpture trail; this year we are looking at nature and celebrating how lucky we are to be so close to the forest.
There are also lots of great events lined up for you to enjoy, the week kicks off on the  evening of Friday 10th May with two events: the Launch Party in the upstairs bar of Yaz Restaurant and a classical concert at All Saints Church. Then on  Saturday 11th May there is the Vintage Market at Hale End Library, with vintage stalls and book signings, food & refreshments, exhibitions,  kids activities and music from Harmony E4 Choir. 
The week will finish with the Spring Festival in The Highams Park (by the lake) on Sunday 19th May, where there will be Maypole dancing, craft stalls, kids activities, and much more.
We would like to thank all the artists and creatives who have taken the time to get involved and all the shops and businesses that have given space and time to exhibit work or host events    
The HP Arts Trail is supported with funding from Hatch Lane and Hale End & Highams Park Community Ward Forums. A special thanks also goes out to all the local shops, businesses and volunteers supporting the Art Trail – we couldn’t do it without you!
