MARKETFEST, Artisan’s monthly market event, returns to the chic Spinningfields venue for its second stint on 30th October, 2016. The event promises to be bigger and busier than before, with live music and more than twenty stalls, pop-ups and activities for all the family, with added spookiness the day before Halloween. There will also be 30% off Sunday roasts for parties who book their table in advance (via this link only http://artisan.uk.com/marketfest). Guests at Marketfest can expect to be treated to a range of activities including cake decorating from Zara Cakes, the ‘Cartoon Confessional’ by Tony Husband, cocktail masterclasses, giant pumpkin carving, flatbread making, make up classes, sparkly face painting by Wish Upon A Sparkle, toffee apple making, and many more. Traders at the event include David Draws, selling hand drawn black and white prints, Kula Jewellery with bespoke pieces, the Glass Gardener’s terrariums, handmade candles from the Naked Candle Co, plus more to be confirmed. To keep the whole family entertained, there will be live music from The Pick Me Ups (pictured), as well as board games and giant Jenga and Connect 4. Grown-ups are covered too, with glam make up tutorials, cocktail classes, and, of course, the amazing Artisan bar and drinks menu. Artisan event manager, Rachael Ainsworth, said: “Our last Marketfest event was a great success, so we’ve been spending the past few weeks preparing for October’s. We’re proud to be able to offer our customers a monthly, family-friendly event with varied entertainment. We hope people will come back and see what we have up our sleeves at the end of every month.” Guests are encouraged to book a table in advance for a Sunday roast, with 30% off the food bill up for grabs for anyone who does so via this link http://artisan.uk.com/marketfest .
