Welcome to Barton upon Humber

This charming town on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds in the shadow of the Humber Bridge has a lot to offer the visitor. In medieval times Barton was the most important port on the Humber and has many fine merchants' houses. Today the town centre is home to a wide range of friendly independent shops, welcoming eateries and museums. Regular events and performances are held through out the year.

Final weekend of Insight Open Studios

This weekend (September 23 and 24) is the final weekend to support Insight, the open studio event celebrating the artistic talents of North and North East Lincolnshire.

This is the 17th year that Insight has run promoting Northern Lincolnshire’s visual arts and craft practitioners.

Artists from Grimsby to the Isle of Axholme are opening their doors to the public, making themselves available to explain and demonstrate the processes involved in developing their work. There will be the opportunity to view and perhaps purchase or commission original paintings, prints, textiles, sculpture, jewellery and glass.

All studios and galleries, unless otherwise marked, will be open 10.30am to 5pm on each day. For further details contact the individual artists, galleries or telephone 01652 660380.

For more details go to http://www.insightopenstudios.org.uk/ for  details of the 38 artists and galleries that are taking part. Not all artists have easily accessible studios and so some will be showing their work at other sites.
