The Bradford on Avon Arts Festival is looking for trading boats and liveaboard artists and craftspeople for a traders fair between 1st and 20th September 2014. Please contact Lindsey Huchrak on 01225 867738 or 07958 330312 if you wish to help organise or take part in this event. There will be free advertising courtesy of the Arts Festival on www.boaartsfestival.com and in other media.
On Sunday 14th September there will be an event on the K&A canal between the Lock Inn and the Cross Guns including live music on two boats.
The festival organisers say “There will be celebrations during the festival period all over the town. There will be a good foot fall of people so if liveaboard artists and creatives would like to organise a traders fair over that period from their boats, including the 14th September, people would be able to view and purchase their work”. In the past, one or two liveaboard artists and craftspeople have held “open studios” on their boats in Bradford on Avon, but this is a more ambitious project for the Arts Festival.
