The next Medway Open Studios and Arts Festival will run from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 10th July 2022.

After 2 disturbed years, we are back! This year we are resuming our activities and free trails of fascinating studios to visit.

2022 marks our 10th birthday! This year we have an amazing 28 venues to visit and work on show by over 300 artists. From watercolours, printmaking, jewellery to photography – Medway artists have it all on offer this July.

This year we’re very grateful to have the added support from our sponsor The City of Rochester Society, and a Community Grant from Rochester Riverside.


Each year, visitors are welcomed to explore the hidden creative work spaces and secret studios across Medway. Along the trail you can take part in art activities and events, view exhibitions, talk to the artists, buy art and crafts, and see first hand the array of artistic talent and opportunities in this impressively creative area of Kent.

Keep an eye on our Facebook pageInstagram and Twitter feed for sneak peeks of our preparations, the venues, our events and news on the activities you’ll be able to enjoy during the nine days of open studios.
