The cultural adventure which showcases works by local artists as it weaves its way through workshops, studios, cafes and retail outlets all the way from San Remo and Newhaven to Churchill Island and Cowes will run from 10 – 19 June and is yet another great reason to visit the island for a day or a weekend this winter.
