What is Art in the Nave?

It is an initiative to support local artists, bring arts and crafts to local people and in turn bring more people to the Old Town High Street of Hemel Hempstead and the National Monument that is beautiful and historic Norman church of St Mary (1140-1180). It is an event organised entirely by volunteers enabling much needed funding to be raised to support local charities.

The summer art show and sale 2024 will focus a bright spotlight on the visual arts when it opens  Saturday 24th to Monday 26th August 2024

The three-day festival, represents a major event in the arts calendar with an exhibition and sale of works by up to 40 artists. We are delighted that our favourite artists continue to support this prestigious event  and we are very happy to make new artists a welcome addition to the team.
