Art In Shop Windows

Bulwell is about to explode as an Art Gallery for the week. It’s another exciting year for our Artists who are displaying their Art in shop windows in Bulwell.

We have nearly doubled business involvement this year and we hope to have even more support next year!

We hope you like all the art work as much as we’ve enjoyed organizing it.
