techford Art Trail is a new art and walking trail with sites dotted around the East Birmingham neighbourhoods of Stechford, Glebe Farm and North Yardley.  All 10 new public art pieces have been created with the help of residents, community groups and local partners. Along with two existing pieces Arts In The Yard have formed a free, fun and family-friendly art trail that is best explored on foot.

The trail is designed as a walking route, it is best to leave the car at home!  You can start and end the trail where it suits you. If you live outside the trail area please consider travelling by public transport. You can get the train to Stechford Rail Station. Bus routes that serve the trail area include: 11, 14 and 97.

All our artists are Birmingham based with many having links to the trail area.  The project is delivered by Arts In The Yard; a grassroots, community-led arts organisation. We are part of the city’s Local Arts Forum network supported and funded by No. 11 Arts and Birmingham City Council. We aim for everyone to have access to the arts: as participants, creators, leaders and audience. We also foster community development and community cohesion.

This project has been delivered in partnership with Stechford In Bloom and FITCAP CIC.   With thanks to: Culture Team (Birmingham City Council), Blakesley Hall, Stechford Leisure Centre, Glebe Farm Library, Stechford Baptist Church, Hobmoor Community Centre, BPCN’s Scrapstore at Swan Courtyard, Yardley Great Trust, Network Rail and Glebe Farm Football.
