Cambridge Open Studios takes place each year over four weekends in July. Studios are open on both Saturdays and Sundays between 11am and 6pm. Some members are open for all four weekends, others for only some of them. Details of artists taking part will be available on the Open Studios pages of our website – and in the free printed Open Studios Guide – in the run up to the event.  

The 2016 Open Studios will take place over the weekends of July 2/3, 9/10, 16/17 and 23/24. The 2017 Open Studios will take place over the weekends of July 1/2, 8/9, 15/16 and 22/23.

To participate in the July Open Studios you must be a member of COS (see ). The fee for taking part in Open Studios will be £140 in 2017.

The deadline for registering and paying is 31 January 

Participation fees are paid between early November and January. You must renew your membership for the following year, or have joined for the first time, before you can pay your participation fee. To pay the fee, log into your account on the website. Go to your account page and click on the link to sign up and pay for your participation. Once you have paid click on 'July Open Studios' on your account page to upload content for your entry in the printed guide. 

The deadline for completing all content is mid February (exact date will be sent to members)

Sharing a guide entry: Two or more members can share the participation fee if they wish. This means they will have a shared entry in the guide and on the website. To do this just one member should make the payment and upload content. At the bottom of the participation content form click on 'Shared entry'. This will open up a list of members' names. Select the names of other members sharing the entry and click on the green plus sign to add them to the participation list (they must have paid or renewed their COS membership). If you want your own, individual entry in the guide please ignore this section.
