The region’s largest art event returns this month! Cambridge Open Studios is taking place over four weekends in July and one of these weekends, Saturday and Sunday 21 and 22 July, coincides with Castle Hill Open Day.

Why not plan your route to include the exciting open day programme and visits to artists nearby?

Artists open their doors to the public over four weekends in July for Cambridge Open Studios. Among the huge range of specialisms will be: fine art, photography, pottery, glass making, sculpture, illustration, textiles, jewellery and furniture making, and more besides.

We’ve selected a few artists who are located near Castle Hill so if you have time between the busy programme on Saturday 21 July, you might like to pop in between 11am and 6pm.

Murray Edwards College Artists

Visit the Murray Edwards College Gardens as part of Castle Hill Open Day. Explore their plants and herbs and try your hand at making your own tea blend! While you’re there, check out some of the Cambridge Open Studios artists in the college.
