Family-favourite summer art trail, the Buxton Flowerpot Trail, is set to begin on Saturday 1 July. To be included as a location on the map, which is produced by Buxton-based community arts group, Funny Wonders, you must email them your location by the close of play on Sunday 25 June via [email protected]

The theme is Gilbert & Sullivan to celebrate the return to Buxton this year of the entire International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival.

“The G&S festival has been really supportive of the trail this year and they are running a ‘best flowerpot’ competition with prizes to be awarded alongside the opera productions at their Festival Awards Ceremony. Three cash prizes have been announced, £50, £30 and £20, and every G&S-themed entry to the flowerpot trail will receive a £5 voucher for use at any of the festival events, which is really generous.” says Funny Wonders Artistic Director, Ali Quas-Cohen. “Although, you don’t need to align to theme, you can make whatever you like.”
