Lytham Hall Winter Art Fair 2021

Hopeful and Glorious is delighted to return to Lytham Hall for our Winter Art Fair on Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st November 2021.

We have received so many applications already, we are sorry, but we can only ask for further applications if you wish to be outside in the courtyard or bring your own gazebo.

Event information and how to apply

If you are interested in applying for a stand at Lytham Hall please complete the online form. If you cannot complete the online form, please email us at hopefulandglorious@gmail.com for a Word version of the form to complete.

We will select artists to reflect a high quality, diverse range of artworks. This is a fair where visitors expect to find unique gifts for Christmas. Our fairs receive a high number of maker applications. We may decline your application if it is too close in subject, style or craft to another artist that we have already accepted. Please see Terms & Conditions.

This year we will have less indoor space in the Hall, but more opportunity for outdoor gazebos. This will help to make it as COVID-safe as possible. The fair will take place in person but also online. The stall price includes a stall listing on our website. In the event of a further enforced lockdown, the fair will take place online with each listing being enhanced to become your own online shop link with images of your work similar to our 2020 Winter Fair Online.

Single day stalls are available for the outdoor courtyard or gazebo options only and are subject to availability.

The Upper West Wing is accessed by stairs and lift. All other areas are on the ground floor.

Makers are encouraged to bring their own card payment machines as there is no central card payment facility.

Locations within Lytham Hall

Situated indoors, within the first floor of the West Wing across two rooms. Access is available by stairs or lift.

Just off the Courtyard, there are two rooms where artists can display and sell in and slightly more sheltered environment.
The outdoor courtyard is sheltered, with an over-hanging roof.

Close to the hall, this flat area will provide a designated space for makers to set up their own gazebos. There are no electric hook ups so you will need to bring your own battery powered lighting if required.

Prices includes an online listing on our website for the period from the fair until after Christmas.

It is only fair that makers occupy only the area that you have paid for. If you require more space than allocated, you will need to contact us in advance. There may be an additional charge. We will not allow any print racks; side tables or stands which go beyond your agreed stall area unless this has been arranged in advance.
