When our pop-up closes in the stables at Houghton Hall on Saturday 30 September, we will have completed eighty days. In those eighty days we have welcomed upwards of 16,000 visitors and sold artworks and designed pieces by over 48 local artists, designers and craftspeople from all across Norfolk. Don’t miss your chance to purchase one of these wonderful treasures – we will be gone before you know it!
We’ve had wonderful feedback as well as some pretty impressive people passing through – Sir Nicholas Serota (ex-Tate, now head of Arts Council England), Richard Long, Tom Stoppard, Nicholas Culling (Director of the National Portrait Gallery), John Richardson (world renowned expert on Pablo Picasso); as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from their Norfolk home on the Sandringham Estate.

We have enjoyed a generous mention in the London Evening Standard, EDP Norfolk magazine gave us another mention (see below) as did The Telegraph Homes section and plenty of local press outlets. Very appreciative London, regional and international gallerists have also visited and admired the high quality of work on display – and indeed made purchases themselves. On top of this we have been encouraged by the many local interior designers, hoteliers, venue owners, developers and new home-owners who have been to see the show and commit themselves to purchasing or commissioning a new piece from one of our exhibitors for their homes, offices or venues.
We would also like to thank our key sponsors, Norfolk Country Cottages and Congham Hall Hotel and Spa
