Arts in the Park, new arts and crafts festival in Lymington, every Sunday from 1 June to 13 July.Arts in the Park summer 2014 new arts and crafts displays and sale


Lymington & Pennington Town Council and Blue Dog Art are excited to announce the inaugural “Arts In the Park”, this summer for 6 weeks in June and July.


What's in store are 6 consecutive Sundays of Art in the Park at Bath Road Recreation Grounds.  Lymington Bandstand Bath Road Recreation Grounds That's close to Lymington Bandstand and alongside Lymington River - already a lovely venue for Sunday wandering and stopping to listen to the band, and for June and July with much more to offer Lymington's Sunday strollers!  


There will be a number of participating arts and crafts stalls on each of the Sundays, together with some welcome food and drink stalls, and fun events for the children.  Local businesses are sponsoring prizes, and the information stall set up for visitors to the area.


This is the initiative of Lymington resident Fran Perks whose mission with her Blue Dog Art is to champion arts and crafts in Lymington and the local area and who says:


"Whether you come by car, train, the Isle of Wight ferry or your yacht, come and join in the fun, wander around the corner be greeted by the jubilance of the Town Band – they always play with enthusiasm and delight!  And then to indulge your senses in stalls of sheer wonder and talent – fantastic art and crafts, from driftwood to dolls, craft to ceramics,  textiles to tats, painting to photography, garden gnomes to garden gorgeous recycled art. There is an unbelievable amount of talent available to view, and to buy."


Fran also asks us to remind you all to please remember to bring some cash with you – many of the traders do not have card facilities.)


The Town Band will be playing in the Pavilion, the little playground for children is open to all, free of charge and open all day; and there will be entertainment stalls such as bouncy castle, and food and drink stalls to enjoy your day. What could be more fun than spending a day in the sun, by the sea on the Solent, in Lymington – with so many other venues to explore and so much shopping to do!  And don’t forget the New Forest ice creams...


HOWEVER, these stalls are ONLY open on Sundays because the market works on Saturdays in Lymington which includes some of the traders.  New “Arts in the Park” on Sundays at Bath Road Recreation Grounds, every Sunday from 1st June to 13th July, 11am-5pm.  Don’t miss it!
