The North West’s biggest arts, craft and design market is returning to Liverpool Cathedral this December.
Open Culture has announced details for this year’s Winter Arts Market which will feature over 200 curated artists, designers and makers selling original handmade work.
Alongside the arts and crafts offer, the market will also feature a ‘vintage basement’ packed with clothing, jewellery, homewares, books and vinyl from some of Liverpool’s best-known vintage sellers.
Next to the vintage basement, shoppers will also find a dedicated food fair, featuring food and drink including handcrafted chocolate, fruit liqueurs, beer, port, blended teas, jams, cake and more.
Meanwhile, the cathedral’s Welsford Café will be open all day serving a BBQ and other refreshments including mulled wine.
Open Culture had also revealed that the 2018 Summer Arts Market will take place at Liverpool Cathedral on Saturday 2 June.
Christina Grogan, director of Open Culture, says: “This will be our ninth Winter Arts Market and we’re so happy to present the public with an alternative shopping experience this Christmas.
“We’ve hand selected over 200 of the best artists, makers, food producers and vintage traders in the region.
“What we love about the markets is that they’re not only a way for the public to buy amazing and unique gifts for their friends and family but also a means for those artists to promote and platform their work and connect with potential clients and other creative.”
The Winter Arts Market will take place at Liverpool Cathedral on Saturday 2 December from 10am-7pm.
