To celebrate the variety and talent of independent business in Nottingham and beyond we are introducing, Summer Markets at Nottingham Contemporary. These markets will be held in our large ground floor area, The Space, and will be a scaled back version of our popular annual Christmas Craft Fair.

The last year has been tough and we have missed hosting brilliant small business at our popular Fairs. The markets will be relaxed and reflective of the current conditions, with a reduced number of stalls and socially distanced. We aim for these markets to be a great way to reconnect with audiences, in person in a safe and friendly environment.

Application requirements:

We are looking for independent designers, makers and small businesses across a broad selection of disciplines with a focus on quality and original design.

Included in the cost are:

Tresle table approx 182x68 cm and 2 chairs

Marketing via social media to our reach of over 120k followers

Paid social media advertising

Mail outs to our wide audience and details across our website
