Applications for our 2023 Christmas Arts Markets have now closed.

The Arts Market is a chance for artists and makers to sell their work and interact with both new and existing customers. The event is generally well-attended and the relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere is enhanced by the refreshments available from the Drill Hall Arts Café.
Information for stallholders
Each stall includes a table (6ft x 2.5ft) and most are available with hanging space at the back of the stall. Successful candidates will be charged £55 for table only stalls and £60 for a table and hanging space stalls. The hanging spaces consist of wooden panels behind the stall. The market opening times are 11am-5pm, with set-up from 9am.
The Arts Markets are promoted by Out of the Blue Riso posters and flyers as well as via social media and other external advertising
Out of the Blue uses a distribution company for the bulk of the publicity material but Stallholders are encouraged to put up a few posters, hand out flyers and send them to their contacts to help with the promotion. The publicity material will be made available for collection from the Drill Hall and stallholders will be notified when it’s ready for pick-up. The Arts Markets are also widely publicised online via event listings websites and social networks.
