Chester Arts Fair – Returning THIS MONTH

Chester Arts Fair 2017 – Returning for a very special year and here’s what’s in store ….

We are delighted that Chester Arts Fair will be celebrating its 6th edition this year and is now firmly established as the UK’s largest artist Art Fair outside London. The Fair will host over 90 leading artists, with more international artists exhibiting than ever. We have an incredible weekend planned, with an exciting programme to make this year more engaging and enjoyable than ever.

As part of our mission to make art affordable for all, our artists have kindly donated 100 pieces of art which will go on sale from £25 to £100 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to our official charity ‘The Countess Hospital’s Babygrow Appeal’. Many of these pieces are worth significantly more, so don’t miss out!

Visitors can enjoy the latest interior ideas and tips for 2018 from our partner the Fab Chair Company. We also will be hosting Innovative Live Art & Demonstrations – a fresh programme of  Live Sculpting, Watercolour Workshops, Interactive Painting Demonstrations and much more…

Our goal to support art at grass roots level has been given a boost with more schools than ever participating in our Art In Educational Awards. Also our Children’s Live Art Area is now being sponsored by Chester Zoo, with numerous arts activities to inspire your little ones to create their own artistic masterpiece at the Fair!

Finally we are delighted to be supporting emerging artists with our Visual Art Open Awards. The Top 25 Finalists Exhibition is taking place at the Fair. It is a rare and unique opportunity as every piece of art we sell has been specially selected by a panel of expert judges.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Fair. Happy browsing! BOOK YOUR 50 OFF TICKETS USING NEWS50 >>
