Due to Coronavirus this event has been cancelled. For the latest information and advice on Coronavirus in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, please click here.​​​​​​

The Workhouse and businesses of Southwell are inviting people to venture into the picturesque town of Southwell and take part in the 'Do it Different' Southwell Shop and Arts Trail.

Created in collaboration with local businesses, the trail features work from the artists involved in the 'Do it Different' project which is exhibiting at The Workhouse this spring.

Using a map (available from any of the 7 shops taking part); participants follow the trail around the town, spot the aprons in the windows which feature some of the artwork created by The Factory artists and collect the different coloured stamps before trading them in for a 'Do it Different' enamel badge at The Workhouse shop. People can support the project further and visit the final 'Do it Different' exhibition at The Workhouse.
