Primrose Hill residents can follow a perfect socially-distanced art trail this Sunday thanks to the local community association.

Organisers are expecting around 40 people - both professional artists and those who have been creative during lockdown - to display their work in spots visible from the street.

Art lovers can download a map of the artworks which range from tapestry to ceramics, photographs to paintings.

Trustee Doro Marden said: “One of my co-trustees Maureen Betts does watercolour classes with U3A and has produced work regularly during lockdown. The idea was to ask people to find places to display their art where it can be seen, as a nice way to bring the community together. We hope people can be out and about in safety on Sunday looking at art.”

Primrose Hill Community Association member Mick Hudspeth added: “We knew we couldn’t have an exhibition, so we came up with the idea of each artist showing their work in a window or other area visible from the street.”

The deadline to be included on the trail is this Wednesday and Doro says it is open to all.
