Forming a new route known as the White Horse Trail, a series of outdoor events, will help countryside lovers explore more than 100 miles of the Wiltshire landscape between now and August.

Artists Ali Pretty and Richard White are working with the Wiltshire Museum and Devizes Outdoor Celebratory Arts to produce an exciting, interactive journey around Pewsey, Marlborough, Hackpen and Devizes, offering unique views of the eight white horses etched into Wiltshire’s chalk hillsides.

Visitors are invited to contribute to the journey by assisting the creative team with a silk flag installation and attending the Devizes International Street Festival and Carnival, as well as taking part in the many events hosted by Wiltshire Heritage.

These include creative workshops, family activities, talks by White and museum director David Dawson and the opportunity to meet the artists and create your own white horses.

A British carnival designer, Pretty is best known as the founding member and artistic director of outdoor arts company Kinetika, as well as being a prominent textile designer.

White works as creative producer. His projects focus on participatory arts and media production and creative collaboration.
