In 1977, 51 artists and musicians took part in the first Art in Action and 14,000 visitors arrived. In 2016, Art in Action welcomed approximately 28,000 people over four days. Visitors came to learn, buy and enjoy the exhibitions, classes and performances.
In 2016 the decision was taken to end Art in Action in its current form. The plan is very much to develop Waterperry House and Gardens as a centre for the Arts, and we have been working with other organisations to extend the range of events that are available at Waterperry House.
