Lancaster Arts is pleased to announce our annual Supporters Trip for 2015, with a visit to Leeds on Tuesday 8th December. Exclusive and free* to Supporters our day trips offer informal visits to art festivals and galleries relevant to the North West. The trips are aimed at Supporters who hold a shared enthusiasm for contemporary art and are keen to get to know Lancaster Arts staff. Places are limited and booked via the Lancaster Arts box office on a first come first served basis. 

This year we head to the city of Leeds and to the Leeds Art Gallery currently hosting British Art Show 8, a curated showcase of breakthrough contemporary artists from the isles. The trip begins at BAS8 with an introductory tour, then returns early evening for a talk from artist Anthea Hamilton. In between we visit artist-led studios East Street Arts and the recently established Tetley centre for contemporary art, with introductions/tours at each. Departure will be at 9.30am sharp from Lancaster University, returning between 9 and 10pm.
