Peterborough Artists’ Open Studios celebrates its 21st anniversary year and even though it may be a little different from previous years, it will definitely be a welcome return to the local art and culture scene once again this year. 

This year PAOS currently has 127 member artists.  You can take a look at their profiles here.  85 members are exhibiting this year at a range of venues across the PE postcode area.  

PAOS artists Tony Nero, Josie Kelly, Stacey-Ann Cole and Mahemuda (Muni) Arsalani will be exhibiting their art at Central Park along with Paul Saunders 3/4/10/11 July 11-4pm.

PAOS Chair, Jackie Hall, said “It’s great to be back as many people missed their Peterborough Artists’ Open Studios’ visits last year, meeting and chatting to the very talented makers and creators based around the Greater Peterborough area.   It’s great to see some familiar faces again this year, but we’ve also attracted some new members too, so it will be great to get around to see them too.”

“We strongly urge people to plan their visits as some artists aren’t open every weekend.  We also would ask people to check the artist’s website page before they set off on the day just in case they have had to change their plans due to Covid.”

What to expect when you visit the venues

You will receive a warm welcome and the opportunity to enjoy seeing original arts and crafts and meet the makers and creators.  You will have the opportunity to buy original pieces of work from members and, in many locations, enjoy refreshments and the opportunity to enjoy the gardens too.

Planning your visits

You can visit as many, or as few, artists as you wish. Please check the dates, opening and closing times and location of your chosen artist(s) here >> before you set off so you can enjoy as many venues as you can within the area.


As most venues are private homes, disabled access may be limited.  It may be worthwhile contacting the host before you set off to discuss your requirements. 

And finally…

We hope you enjoy PAOS 2021 and thank you for your support.
