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.

Liverpool accordionist Helen Maher will be playing at the Winter Arts Market from noon! A whirlwind of old-time gypsy jazz; she will move about the hall and perhaps make you feel like you’re walking down a bustling market  promenade in 1930’s Paris, mon cher.

Dave Ellwand from the Musicians Gallery at the Walker  tells us: “Helen’s lively but relaxed accordion playing combines a world of music in a box. Her playing conjures up nostalgia for an imagined past in a familiar place you’ve yet to visit. Her music has a predominant feel of French/Gypsy/American Jazz, and has elements that inspire dancing and delight the heart.” Lovely.
