Felixstowe’s Unique Arts and Crafts Bonanza Returns on 3rd September With Over 90 Local Artists

Posted by Town Hall Staff 14 August 2023

Over 90 artists and craft makers will have their work for sale at this year’s Art on the Prom in Felixstowe. The long-awaited return of this long standing event happens on Sunday the 3rd of September and promised to be a wonderful day-long celebration of creativity and community.

The event is free to attend, open to the public from 10am until 4.30pm, and will be located in its usual place along the promenade, from the Pier to Spa Gardens.

 In addition to the arts and crafts, there will be a program of walkabout artists, entertainments and street food happening across Felixstowe put on by Love Felixstowe, a town wide free festival taking place over the same weekend.

Visitors are encouraged to come along and celebrate the return of a much loved event as well as to support the fantastic array of artists who will be exhibiting. A great free family day out guaranteed, and if you fall in love with a painting or find a unique handmade gift for a special person, then all the better.

The event has been made possible by huge financial and organisational support from the East Suffolk Council, Felixstowe BID and Felixstowe Town Council as well as generous sponsorship from two local businesses Goldstar Transport and Aquabridge Law.

Without the generous support from local organisations, the return of the event in 2023 would not have been possible. Art Eat Events are proud to be reinstating this community driven event and wish everyone who takes part huge success. We hope to return every year and urge the public to visit and enjoy what promises to be a wonderful array of affordable arts and crafts from local talented creatives.” Iona Hodgson, Event Producer, Art Eat Events.

The organisers continue to add the finishing touches to the event and are still recruiting volunteers, so if you are interested in helping out on the day, please check the website. www.artontheprom.uk
