Yes, we are back! Relaunched for 2022.


Art @ Ancrum is a long weekend of exhibitions and demonstrations by professional artists and design-led makers in multiple venues throughout the village of Ancrum, where you can meet and purchase directly from the artisans.

See and support the wealth of local creative talent.

“Art at Ancrum, relaxed, friendly and arty.
You can visit artists, look at the view, have a coffee, pop in to see a local maker, have something to eat, look at some paintings, visit the hall/gallery, look at the gardens, have a picnic on the green, go for a walk, purchase a print, have a pint, have a gin, have a wine and some cake.
It’s not just an event, it’s a whole new experience.”
(Stuart Dalgleish)


Building on the success of the 2012 ‘Crossing Borders’ Art Trail exhibition, a group of participants proposed a new initiative, a long weekend of Art@Ancrum. Starting in 2013 this turned into an annual event, supported by the people of the village.Buy Local Art

We missed 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 epidemic, and now with a revised committee and new joint co-ordinators, we are back for 2022, which will be our 8th year.

A selection of professional artists and design-led makers from across the Borders have been invited to participate. Many had taken part before but there were a few new names for 2022. It would be great if you could support them by checking out their profile and linking to their own websites and maybe even buying from them online.


A carved stone cross stands on the triangular village green, where regular markets took place from 1490. Bishop Blackadder of Glasgow, as feudal lord of the village, set up a market in a failed attempt to turn the village into a centre for trade and commerce, perhaps we can make it a centre for “The Arts” instead?
