The market element of the Festival will take place on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 April 2023 and will surround The Base building - we're even going to close the road in front of us to make next year's event even bigger than last!

In addition to the market, there will be a free to access art exhibition running from Sat 1 - Sun 16 April featuring local artists' work for sale, as well as taster workshops for visitors to have a go at learning something new whilst they're with us. Details about how to exhibit will be released soon - keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

This year we are also looking for sponsors to support the marketing of the event - if you are interested in joining us and getting your brand seen by thousands of local people, please contact Steph Johnson (Gallery Manager) on [email protected]
