10 days in September featuring artwork in 30 locations; an art-trail around this historic town; daily events and live experiences.
Altrincham is thoroughly enjoying its new reputation as a dynamic foodie town. The award-winning Altrincham Market House is packed to the rafters and ‘doing an Altrincham’ has become a NW region byword for food-led regeneration.
This historic charter market town is becoming a great place to live again – but there remain gaps. Sited on the fringes of Manchester, with a tram service every 6 minutes to cultural attractions in the city just 30 minutes away, arts and culture is a bit low key. That needs to change. The exciting food scene is attracting new, younger residents and visitors and the time is right to capitalise on this.
Open Studios Altrincham is doing just that. Building on its inaugural event last year, Hidden Altrincham 2017 (14-24 September) will shine a spotlight on the town’s less familiar gems, creating and showing art in places that celebrate and appreciate the space it is in.
We are helping this small organisation plan its marketing and stakeholder engagement and to set a route to 2020 when the aim is for Hidden Altrincham to be a well-established event in the town’s calendar.
