BRIGHTON ART FAIR at LEWES

Brighton Art Fair returns, this year it will take place in the beautiful Lewes Town Hall on the 30th November and 1st December.

 

Brighton Art Fair at Lewes

Brighton Art Fair will take place this year in Lewes Town Hall – the Corn Exchange and Assembly Room.

Lewes is the perfect venue for the show, the County Town of East Sussex is beautiful and worth a visit and it has a tradition of support for the arts dating back centuries. The collector and patron Edward Perry Warren  of Lewes House famously gifted Rodins sculpture ‘The Kiss’ (it is now in the Tate).

Lewes boasts a high proportion of great independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

Lewes Town Hall

Lewes Town Hall is in the very centre of town opposite the War Memorial at the junction of Market Street and High Street. The Town Hall was built in 1892 on the foundations of the Star Inn. The celllars of the Star Inn still remain and it was from there that the 17 protestant martyrs went to be burnt at the stake (commemorated each year by the riotous Lewes bonfire) The Assembly Rooms predate the Town Hall and are Georgian and the Corn Exchange is Victorian. Together they will provide a beautiful, light and spacious venue for the Art Fair this year.

We had hoped to be back at the Brighton Dome – Corn Exchange this year however the renovation of this unique and historic building is taking longer than expected mostly due to issues with the unique, large, historic, single span wooden barrel vaulted roof.

We will be back at the Corn Exchange in September 2020 .
