We’re proud to be part of the Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture

Whether you’re an established artist who wants to support other creatives, a young artist looking for an opportunity or someone who just wants to have fun being creative and meet some like-minded souls, then there’s a place on the Trail for you.

Entry for 2019 is open now til 14th April..

In order to enter you will need to:

…make sure you’re available for show dates 6th – 14th July, then…

1. Find a venue

You can display your work anywhere in Leytonstone so long as you have permission from the owner or manager of the venue. Consider cafes, shops, galleries, studios, workshops, your own home or even outdoors.

2. Prepare a suitable image and text description

Your image should be 1000 pixels along the longest edge, in jpeg or png format and no bigger than 500kb. Good images attract visitors to your show via the website and Guide so don’t leave your photography til the last minute… Submit your images as part of your online registration.

3. Pay and register online

There are two forms of entry that showcase your listing and location:

Individual / small: £25 – this gets you a small amount of text plus a thumbnail example of your work and your dot on the map, and a listing on the website. (This could also be a suitable option for venues shared between a small number of people (ie 2 or 3) who are happy for their show to be represented by a single image and description.)

Group / large: £60 – this gets you a space of approximately A6 size, portrait or landscape, advertising your show in the Guide, a dot on the map and a group listing page on the website. The advert should be simple and clear to read, contain the venue location with postcode, opening times, name and any other information you wish to include.


The fee for for listing events is optional as we recognise artists make most events free for participants.

You are still asked to provide an image and text which will be included on the website; your text and dot on the map will be included in the Guide; but we may not be able to include your image in the Guide.  If you wish to guarantee inclusion of your event image in the Guide, the same fees apply as for exhibitions.

The Deadline to be included in the Guide is April 14th.
