General & Artists Market

RSS
3 September — 23 December 2009

held every weekend until Christmas

The two markets are held on Events Square every Saturday and Sunday. The General Market on Saturdays and The Artists' Market on Sundays. The latter has been highly successful since Easter and the General Market is now in its second month.

Square Art and Falmouth Festivals Ltd are proud to announce that from Sunday April 12th on Events Square in Falmouth they will be hosting every Sunday a regular Artists Market.

Inspired by the artists street markets in Paris, Madrid and London , Lea Parry and Jo James brought their idea to Falmouth Festivals Ltd who were delighted to be associated with the project.

Lea and Jo believe that these markets are great outlets for local artists as well as attracting visitors from all over the world. Cornwall is a huge centre for artists and a regular market like this is a simple but effective way of promoting their work to a wide audience. In Europe and London these markets are huge tourists attractions and draw people into the town bringing valuable revenue.

The pitches for the artists are priced so that new up and coming artists and students can afford to exhibit their work as well as the established artists.

Mike Rangecroft, speaking as a director of Falmouth Festivals commented "We are delighted to welcome this exciting new initiative to Events Square. It is exactly the sort of project the Square was designed for and will enhance all the other events that are planned for this year.

Both are programmed to continue until Christmas.
