The best of the region’s contemporary artists and designers will be showcasing their work, from jewellery and ceramics prints and textiles, at the popular Christmas Art and Food Market at Welbeck from November 27-29.

Combined with the Food Market featuring 20 stalls in the Courtyard, alongside the award-winning Welbeck Farm Shop, the three-day event has become established as an important Christmas shopping destination and one of the best events in the region to discover emerging and established artists since it began 15 years ago.

The Harley Gallery is presenting an exciting selection of 56 designer-makers from across the region to showcase a stunning selection of crafts and designs that make for unusual and fantastic Christmas gifts.

The Harley Studios will also open up during the market for visitors to explore. It’s a great chance to meet the makers and buy directly from the studio.

Susan Sherrit, Harley Gallery manager, said: “The exhibitor list is utterly bursting with new talent, with 30 new exhibitors showing alongside some more familiar faces. Applications to exhibit came thick and fast this year which made the process of awarding stalls incredibly difficult. The resulting selection of 56 exhibitors provides a snapshot of the very best contemporary craft and design being produced in the area.”

The food market organised by the ever-popular Welbeck Farm Shop will include stalls from a mouthwatering array of food producers.

Visitors are advised to arrive early with the market opening at 10am each day. Parking and entry is free.
