One of the UK’s biggest arts and crafts market returns to Sheffield next month
Sheffield City Council has given the green light for its celebrated Art in the Gardens Event to return to the Botanical Gardens next month and they’ve teamed up with the city’s Graysons Solicitors to make it happen.
On 5-6 September, paintings, sculptures, crafts, demonstrations and entertainment are set to fill the Gardens and will also see premier artists in the pavilions and marquees, sculpture on the lawns, the Open Art Exhibition, ‘Home and Gardens’ area and a host of professional artists and craft makers. Soak up the atmosphere in the beautiful landscaped gardens, meet the artists, enjoy some locally sourced food and drink and see some beautiful artwork.
Councillor Mary Lea, Cabinet Member for Culture, Sport and Leisure at Sheffield City Council said: “It’s great that this event can go ahead, celebrating a wealth of artistic talent. Relevant measures are in place so that people can come and enjoy this popular cultural experience, which is one of the largest outdoor art shows in the north. Art in the Gardens is a key event in the cultural calendar in Yorkshire, and it is testament to Sheffield’s reputation that it attracts such talented and creative artists to the city.
“The Botanical Gardens is a beautiful setting and with stalls, demonstrations and of course a huge range of art of all kinds, Art in the Gardens offers a great day out for the whole family, so please come along and enjoy the day safely.”
Peter Clark, managing partner at Graysons, said: “We very much enjoyed being involved in our first Art In The Gardens in 2019 and we’re looking forward to meeting the crowds in September once again. It has been a very difficult year for everyone and it’s a pleasure to be able to help stage such an important event in the city’s arts calendar.”
