About us

We create high quality events for artists, makers and designers from across the North.

People admiring the works of art on a stall

Based in Lancashire, Hopeful and Glorious love to work with talented makers, interesting venues and great organisations to produce colourful events to exhibit and sell art.

Our fairs and markets provide opportunities for visitors to meet the makers, hear about the techniques and inspirations and see a brilliant range of art, craft and design with artists specially selected for each event. We take no commission on sales so visitors know that their purchases directly benefit the makers.

We are always happy to hear from artists so if that’s you, then please send us an email or apply online using the event application forms.

If you are interested in visiting our events you can find details on our Facebook or Instagram or you can sign up for our newsletter which comes out quarterly. Discover and delight at the range and quality of art, craft and design celebrating the skill, talent and unshakeable quirky charm of artists across the region.

There’s plenty to see, buy and enjoy!
