Makers market
15 November event postponed to Sunday 6 December, 10am – 4pm

For independent makers it’s a challenging time. Many have fallen through the net of financial support and usual sales opportunities have reduced considerably.

“What is hopeful, however, is the opportunity to really embrace doing things locally. I’ve been so grateful for the support of returning customers who have come back for commissions or repairs time and time again. This kind of support is pretty remarkable and I think says a lot about our local community.

Building on this sense of doing things locally we are really excited to host our first Sunday Makers Market, 15 November, 10am – 4pm. We hope to give local Frome makers an opportunity to showcase their work and build networks of support with other makers, whilst also offering the local people of Frome opportunity to buy directly from artists and makers and shop locally.”

Halloween Window Wanderland
31 Oct‑1 Nov 2020, 5.30 – 8.30pm

This year we are working with our friends at Frome Window Wanderland to organise a Halloween arts trail. This Covid-safe alternative to trick or treating will give everyone a good excuse to get spooky and decorate their window, house or front garden. You can still dress up and go for a wander around your local area after dark and see the windows that your neighbours have created!

Take part in this event.
