Meet artists, Carol Ann and Guy Eades, who'll be opening their studio on 14th-15th July and 21st–22nd July. Carol Ann will also open on weekdays between 15th-20th July between 10am – 5pm each day.
Ryde Arts Festival grew from the SEEDA funded Ryde Development Trust in 2001.
One of the Trusts aims was to stimulate the regeneration of the town through the arts. The Festival returned each year, bringing more live music, theatre, art and more to the town for Islanders’ enjoyment.
It is now a year-round programme supported by Arts Council, Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund.
Below are some of the articles by OnTheWight featuring Ryde Arts.
Over the coming months there are a whole host of events under the Ryde Arts banner taking place in this gorgeous Georgian town. The official launch takes place on Saturday morning to live harp music and the culmination of many art workshops.

The launch event of the 2017 Ryde Arts Festival features the private view of an exhibition, a performance from dancer, Sophie Wintersgill, alongside live music from a string quartet, as well as the re-creation of the ‘Smashing Performance’ shown at the Saatchi Gallery by Sue Pareskeva.
The Ryde Arts Festival returns once again with a bumper programme of events. There really is something for all the family, workshops, exhibitions, poetry tea parties, live music and more. Keep the dates free in your diary and head to Ryde from 30th June to 9th July.
