Join us on 6 April between 5-7pm to celebrate the growing cultural offer in Trowbridge
Trowbridge Museum has teamed up with Town Hall Arts and the Drawing Projects UK to offer an evening of events across all three venues.
Enjoy the exhibitions and explore art in Trowbridge at your own pace or with a guided walking tour around each venue. The evening will start with drinks at 5pm at Drawing Projects UK at Bridge House on Stallard Street, and the guided tours will commence from there. All three venues are open from 5-7pm and the events are free of charge.
