A suburban arts market will leave its south Birmingham base to set up shop in Colmore Row as part of the city’s celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Moseley Arts Market will up sticks to the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral from 8.30am to 2.30pm on Friday, June 1, with stalls selling artistic work including jewellery, ceramics and fine art.
The event has been organised by Colmore Business District and is the first time the market has moved to another part of the city.
Michele Wilby, executive director of CBD, said the market is a way to broaden the community offer in the business district as well as support local creative talent.
She said: “Moseley Arts Market is a high quality market that showcases and celebrates the creative talents of one of our local neighbourhoods.
“CBD is keen to provide a vibrant offer in the district through supporting and welcoming arts and culture.
“This has been shown through projects including our outdoor photographic exhibitions and our participation in the Birmingham International Jazz & Blues Festival and the Flatpack Festival.”
Moseley Arts Market was established to provide opportunities for people living locally and working in the creative industries, and is held in Moseley on the fourth Saturday of every month from March to December.
