We’re taking over the already established Netil House Market and creating a gathering of artists – fine artists, street artists, print makers, art enthusiasts, collectors, people who just want to come out and enjoy looking at some new exciting art. We’ll have traditional market stalls alive with very reasonably priced art, we’ll have live art, food art, a music stage with bands playing all day. An art fair, an art mart - not just an art fair, a creative gathering, a place to interact, network, be pro-active…
