Christmas Art Market at The Ropewalk
This year The Ropewalk’s Christmas Art Market, which heralds the Barton upon Humber arts centre’s run-up to Christmas is being held over the first two days of December instead of just one day as in previous years.
More than 35 artists and craftspeople will be lining the corridors along the length of The Ropewalk on December 1 and 2 hoping to tempt visitors with original hand-made gifts, cards, textiles, glass and artwork.

“The Art Market really is the ideal place to buy Christmas presents which cannot be found on the High Street,” he added. “The artists and makers at the Market will be selling original handmade gifts, cards and art work at prices to suit everyone’s pocket.
“As always I am sure that there will be very healthy support for this event. We look forward to welcoming supporters of our previous Art Markets as well as new visitors. Our Art Market is very positive news for those supporting the arts in our area.”
“Gifts will be on sale at prices to suit everyone’s pockets and all will have been made by the artists. Even if the weather does its worst visitors can be assured of a warm welcome and an extremely enjoyable shopping experience,” he went on.
The Christmas Art Market will be open between 10am and 4pm on both days and admission is free. Also at The Ropewalk on Saturday, December 1, will be the opening of The Ropewalk’s annual Christmas Show in the Artspace and Gallery One.
