The SHAF (South Hams Arts Forum) Arts Trail starts on Saturday 12 October – two weeks of public access to artists’ studios and gallery spaces to see their work, talk with the artists and enjoy their hospitality. This includes half-term week so we may have lots of visitors in town.
Before the SHAF Trail starts, we have our preview party on the Friday evening. 11 October, 6-9pm.
