There is of course the Frome Independent Market: with lots of artist stalls, food, vintage goodies, and events throughout the day.


Pop on a train to Bruton to catch the final weekend of the amazing Subodh Gupta exhibition at Hauser and Wirth Somerset. Over at Bruton Art Factory Jimmy Cauty‘s jam jar riot works are on display (but the actual riot tour container has since moved on).

Once you’ve done all that you’ll be so inspired you’ll probably want to create a masterpiece of your own. Join in with the Black Swan Arts 30th anniversary 1000 postcard project.
