New artisan markets planned

Furthest From The Sea Music, Comedy and Arts CIC have launched ‘Derbyshire Artisan Markets’, a new selling opportunity for artists, crafters and makers from Derbyshire and beyond.

Dan Webber, the group’s programmer and promoter, said: “Derbyshire Artisan Markets will help us shift our thoughts to the future, helping us all to look forwards as we prepare for better days ahead.

“We’re using this time to reach out, track down and connect with all of the wonderful independent traders across the county, from Glossop to Swadlincote, Ashbourne to Bolsover and all points in between.”

He said there was no way now of confirming market dates, but that they are tentatively planning for a launch event towards the end of the year, followed by April, Summer, September and a December Christmas Market in 2021.
