In case you missed it…

…we have our dates for this year’s Winter Arts Market.

So are you ready with a pen and your shiny new diary?

It’ll happen all over again on Sat 7 & Sun 8 December 2013.

You can expect more of the magic, beautiful crafts, christmassy feeling, food and festivities as last year, and perhaps maybe more…

See our pics below to whet your appetite!

See you next time!

Phew! What a weekend!

We thought you might like to see some snaps from the Winter Arts Market – there are lots more to follow, but in the meantime we’d just like to say a big thank you to:

– the very talented artists, designers and makers who exhibited and sold their work

– the thousands of people that came along to enjoy and support creatives from across the region.

– the brilliant people behind the scenes who make St George’s Hall a truly magnificent venue

– the impressive mix of performing artists who moved and delighted audiences in the Crown Court Room programmed by the marvelous Mellowtone

– KECS Creative for the children’s magical antler workshop

– the roaming historical characters of Lormac Productions

– our tremendous helper Anna Cahill!

–  and all of our very supportive colleagues, friends and families.

Join us next year for the Winter Arts Market – 7 & 8 December 2013.







Alice in Winterland

Alice Lenkiewicz will be holding a stall at the Winter Arts Market (on the Sat only) selling a range of her surrealist and expressionist creations including recycled candlesticks upcycled from wine bottles. They are beautifully hand-painted and embellished with collage and they can be used to create beautiful table displays – perfect for Christmas!

She will also be selling glass paperweights and original watercolours of the River Mersey which are painted en plein air and make a wonderfully original gift.
