Art Fair Volunteer Event


Macclesfield Art Fair is planning an extra special 20th anniversary year in 2019.

In addition to the eight-day Art Fair at Macclesfield Town Hall next September, organisers have also secured an artistic coup from world-renowned installation artist, Susie MacMurray.

Susie is to display a new installation at Tatton Park from next June to the end of September with all proceeds from both events going to the East Cheshire Hospice.

“Susie has an international exhibition profile and we are absolutely delighted that she has agreed to be part of our special anniversary year,” says Georgie Johnson, the new co-chair of the Art Fair. “Her installation is to be inspired by the work of the East Cheshire Hospice and it promises to be fascinating.”

An event to explain more about next year’s plans is to take place on Thursday, September 20 at Over Alderley.

“The Art Fair is run entirely by volunteers and we are going to need lots of support next year,” says Georgie. “There’s lots of job roles – from stewards to café helpers and even if people can only give us a few hours of their time, we’d really love to see them.”

The volunteer event takes place at the Reading Rooms in Birtles Lane from 6pm to 8pm.

The Art Fair, which has now established itself as one of the most respected art exhibitions in the North West of England, will take place between September 26 and October 3 next year. Further info is available from contact@theartfair.org.uk
