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.

Insight Open Studios continues this weekend

Insight Open Studios, celebrating the artistic talents of North and North East Lincolnshire,  continues this weekend throughout the area.

Artists will open 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. This is the 16th year that Insight has run promoting Northern Lincolnshire’s visual arts and craft practitioners.

On  http://www.insightopenstudios.org.uk/are the details of 39 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. If you have any access concerns please contact the individual studios.

All studios and galleries, unless otherwise marked, will be open 10.30am to 5pm on each day.
