Malcolm Cudmore, Harleston and Waveney Art Trail chairman,  said: “After two years of uncertainty and new habits, we’re very happy to be returning to our regular annual weekends in May.

“We hope that our visitors will be intrigued and entranced by the new work made by the artists over the last year. We look forward to welcoming both regular and new visitors and inviting them to see our work in the very place it was made.”
