Art at Christmas stall

ARTISTS and crafters are being invited to take part in a festive art fair later this month.

Organised by Leicester City Council, the Art at Christmas fair will take place on Sunday 16 December at Leicester Market and give visitors the chance to buy direct from local painters, sculptors, photographers and craft artists.

The event itself will run from 11am until 5pm.

Cllr Piara Singh Clair, deputy city mayor responsible for culture and leisure, said: “The new art at Christmas fair is a wonderful chance to support local artists. For a modest fee, they can showcase their works in the heart of the city centre on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.”

Artists will be able to rent a covered stall on the market, which will cost £20 for a single stall or £30 for a double stall for the day.

Anyone interested in exhibiting at the Art at Christmas fair can contact Mandeep Kaur, in the city council’s festivals and events, on 0116 454 3600 or by emailing
