This weekend will see the return of the fantastic winter arts market to St. George’s Hall, attracting visitors from Merseyside and further afield for a jam-packed weekend of arts and crafts.
Run by Merseyside local community interest organisation Open Culture, the market promises a whole host of stalls ranging from handmade cards and jewellery, to prints or original artworks and every craft in between. Run over the whole two days, there is something for everyone, a fantastic experience whether you are looking for that last minute Christmas present or simply browsing for something to treat yourself. Children are welcome, with children and adults alike welcome to make a traditional Christmas Jolly Jumping Jack for just £3 with KECS Creative who are running a craft lab all weekend. The market also provides a food outlet in case you are peckish on your way around the stalls, run by Liverpool’s very own Cuthbert’s Café, selling a range of food and beverages from a simple cup of tea and a cake right up to sandwiches, soups or cooked breakfasts.
First established in 2009, Open Culture now holds these markets twice each calendar year, with the Summer arts market equally as well supported with the markets being the largest and best known arts and crafts markets in Merseyside.
To add to the atmosphere, Crown Court Concerts will also provide live music across the whole weekend, with performances including the Liverpool Ukulele Orchestra, Silent Sleep, Liverpool Shanty Kings and the Liverpool Chamber Choir.
The weekend promises to be one of Christmassy fun and stunning artwork, definitely one not to be missed!
