Under the banner of the Brighton Festival Artists’ Open Houses, The Ditchling Art trail takes place during the first four week-ends of May. Family members with associations of Eric Gill and the historic Guild of St Joseph’s & St Dominic are among the many artists & craftspeople working in & around the village today.
