What our guests & stall holders say

"I was delighted by the whole event. The organisation was spot on, and as a result it felt very stress free during set up and break down, as well as during the opening hours itself.  

It was great to have the extra space too, and feedback from customers was really positive." -

Stall Holder 2021

"It had been almost two years since I was able to participate in a live event, and these are what keep artists going. It’s not just about the sales (which are obviously much easier in real life than online as well), but the opportunity to hear positive feedback, get a sense of what people like, and also to physically meet the buyers of pieces which are in a way a part of one’s soul. Thank you for all the planning that went into such a successful event, and making us feel that everything was being done as safely as possible."
