The Bristol Bazaar Christmas pop-up: call for artists

By steve wright, Wednesday Sep 20, 2017

This December will see the return of The Bristol Bazaar, an annual festive selling exhibition at The Island featuring over 40 of Bristol’s best artists, designers and makers – and the organisers are inviting applications from creatives keen to exhibit and sell at this year’s Bazaar.

“Each year we invite Bristol’s best artists, designers and makers to take part with their newest designs and ideas, showcasing their work in this beautifully curated space – creating a shopping experience with a difference and giving the customer an opportunity to get the finest locally handcrafted gifts all under one roof,” explains co-organiser Rosie McLay.

The Bazaar will be open from Dec 1-23, 10am-8pm daily. There’s an £80 trader fee, but no commission taken. Traders are asked to commit to two five-hour shifts across the entire run (these can be fulfilled by a co-worker or family member if necessary).

Application deadline is October 1. For more info and a copy of the application form, visit
