Cultural Scene & Festivals

There is a big arts scene which comes together over the summer with the Wyle Valley Art Trail. Innovative local galleries Art Stable and Summerleaze have changing exhibitions and represent some national and international artists. For those looking to delve deeper into the past or watch other people re-live it, then the annual Chalk Valley History Festival, Bowerchalk is a historian’s heaven. A full week of talks, lectures, workshops and activities dedicated to all things past. This year’s festival runs 26 June–3 July. cvhf.org.uk
