Heart-shaped earrings for sale at a craft fair


Unique local produce, street food and live music will arrive at Gunwharf Quays from 14 to 16 July.

The waterfront outlet centre is set to host its first ever artisan market. The water-side event will be free to enter and suitable for all ages, with children’s face painting available on Saturday, sand art for all ages on Friday and Saturday, and kiln carving workshops on Friday and Sunday.

In partnership with Funyard Events, this unmissable event will bring together the region’s best designers and independent creators on The Plaza. Guests will be able to browse one-of-a-kind products and gifts, including artwork, jewellery, homeware and much more. The market will also boast a food and beverage court, including a converted horsebox mobile bar, and stalls selling both paella, and frozen slushies.

What’s more, local singer and songwriter Liam Alexander will be performing live over all three days.

Vendors confirmed for the event include Hampshire-based ‘Alicia Rose Designs’, offering luxurious soft furnishings, homewares and accessories, and Southampton-based ‘Love of Nature’, selling sustainable, ethically sourced crystals, incense and more.

The open-air event will be running Friday 14th to Sunday 16th July, from 10am to 7pm on the Friday, 9am to 8pm on the Saturday, and 10am to 6pm on Sunday.

After perusing the handmade goods at the artisan market, guests can go on to enjoy shopping at over 90 big-name brands or relaxing at one of the 30 or so bars and restaurants. Guests can also visit the 14-screen multiplex cinema, bowling alley, art gallery or miniport.
