Manchester Art Fair

This fair – the largest one held in northern England – was founded in 2008 in response to a need for events located out of London. Manchester Art Fair is a prestigious fair that attracts upwards of 120 galleries from all over the UK and internationally. World-famous artists have been exhibited in the past, such as Banksy and Damien Hirst, but also under-represented artists and talent from non-traditional backgrounds are welcomed too. The work available to purchase is modern and contemporary sculpture, photography and paintings with limited-edition prints on offer as well. Adults art classes, tours, demos and children’s activities are held as part of this interesting fair that is held in October every year.
