Herefordshire’s natural beauty acts as a magnet for hundreds of creative people who have chosen it as their inspirational home. Brightstripe’s team has been organising cultural events across Herefordshire for the last 16 years, with all our events offering unique meet-the-maker experiences. In 2015 our events attracted over 30,000 visitors from near and far, with all the associated economic benefits to local businesses.



Our cultural events act as showcases for the creative community, allowing them to display the best of their original artworks, crafts and jewellery – while raising their profiles within elite groupings. Our events have a really warm and intimate feel as artists and designers meet their buying public directly and get to know their regular customers. There is a real business buzz as artists socialise together and network with other creative businesses and gallery owners on the hunt for fresh talent.

For our visitors, attending one of our cultural events gives them the perfect excuse to enjoy a fun day out in one of England’s most beautiful counties. The opportunity to meet and buy from the finest makers from across the UK and commission original pieces directly from the artists adds a really exciting sparkle to the day. That’s the beauty of Brightstripe!
