Liverpool’s Summer Arts Market to relocate this year

The city’s Summer Arts Market will follow in the footsteps of its winter counterpart by relocating to Liverpool Cathedral this year.

Organisers have revealed the details for the 2017 event and are now calling for artists, designers and makers to apply for stalls.

Previously held in St George’s Hall, the market will take place at its new landmark home on Saturday 17 June providing a platform for work by more than 200 of the North West’s best creatives to go on sale.

Alongside stalls offering photography, ceramics and jewellery to decorations, glassware and handmade beauty products, there’ll also be a pop-up vintage fair in the Grade I-listed cathedral’s Concert Room.

In addition, a dedicated food fair will serve up handmade products such as jams, chutneys, teas and truffles.

A craft workshop for children and a BBQ will also be among the attractions.

Open Culture is behind the Summer Arts Market and also the Winter Arts Market, which was the first to make the move to Liverpool Cathedral last December.

Charlotte Corrie, director of Open Culture, says: “We’re always on the lookout for new people who might benefit from getting their work out to sell directly to the public.

“The Summer Arts Market is helpful not just as a platform for sales but also helps to promote new businesses and gives the opportunity to make new contacts, attract new clients and finding other outlets for selling too.”

Applications for new stallholders are being accepted by Open Culture until 17 April.
