Art on the Prom is a contemporary art fair where professional and hobby artists display and sell original work. It takes place on Felixstowe’s popular sea front promenade where the setting adds an extra dimension. Over 100 artists cover a wide range of media, and the event attracts an estimated 20,000 people. In addition to browsing and buying original artwork, free activity tents provide young and old with the opportunity to have a go at creating their own piece of art in one of the many media available. These include painting and ceramic tile making.
The organisers at Art on the Prom are making plans to return in 2023.
Art on the Prom is a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by unpaid volunteers. The cost of the event is met by grants, sponsorship and the fee charged to artists for a stall. Sponsors benefit by being associated with one of Felixstowe’s best known and most popular events.
