Art Fair East returns to the spectacular setting of The Halls, a well-known events venue at the heart of Norwich city centre. Our mission at Art Fair East is to showcase national and international artists, galleries and dealers to an Eastern Region audience of art lovers and collectors. The 2021 fair takes place in the spectacular setting of Blackfriars Hall, at the heart of Norwich city centre.

After the success of previous editions, our aim is to build on this and make the 2021 event our best yet. If you would like the opportunity to be part of this growing event we would love to hear from you. We welcome applications from galleries, individual artists, dealers, and groups of artists. Details of stand sizes and prices can be found on our website.

What will you receive as a participant?

  • All exhibitors will be supported by our targeted national and regional advertising campaign for the Fair, focused upon arts and luxury lifestyle publications. This will be further supported by targeted mail outs to relevant special interest groups within the region, advertising during the fair, strategic partnerships and a professional PR campaign.
