Birmingham’s business district will play host to the popular Moseley Arts Market again after a successful programme last year.
The market, which showcases talented local designers and makers as well as visiting artists, and offers a variety of handmade products including photography, illustration and textiles, returns to the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral for three dates this year.
Usually held in Moseley on the fourth Saturday of every month between March and December, the Moseley Arts Market ventured outside of the neighbourhood for the first time last year when hosted at the Cathedral Grounds for the Queen’s Jubilee.
The market will return again to the Colmore Business District (CBD) on May 31 between 9am and 5:30pm. Further dates in the District include September 26 and December 13.
Diane Benussi, CBD board director, said: “We were delighted to help Moseley Arts Market appeal to a wider audience last year and were keen to bring back the market for this year.
“CBD aims to bring creative and engaging activity to the District and so the chance to celebrate the creative talents of Moseley and welcome them to the city centre is very exciting for us.”
Tony Thapar, co-ordinator of Moseley Community Development Trust, said: “Moseley Arts Market exists to support our local designers, artists and crafters who produce their own work and do not get an opportunity to otherwise showcase it.
Equally, we are always looking to provide high-quality creations and offer a diverse range of products for our visitors.
“We are very pleased that we can take Moseley Arts Market into the city centre and a business district once more as this gives more of Birmingham’s residents the opportunity to come and see what we have on offer.”
