Put these dates in your diary for 2022: Friday 15th July - Sunday 17th July 2022.

Our Big Art Fair at Hitchin Town Hall has become an event which both members and visitors look forward to every year.  This year is no different; with space for over 50 around artists, artisan-makers and designers it promises to be outstanding.

Hitchin Town Hall, Brand Street, Hitchin SG5 1HX is just off the High Street and close to the Market Place. It will be brimming with an amazing array of work, from classical to contemporary, decorative to functional, figurative to abstract, wall-hung to 3D. There will be original artwork, prints and greetings cards all at a range of prices to suit every pocket. Plus, a chance to meet artists every day to discuss their work. 

Our Friday Preview Night is the official opening and sees the launch of Hert Open Studios, as well as presentation of Big Art Fair Sponsors Choice Award certificates. With free drinks, entry on Friday night is £2 at the door, subject to venue capacity limits. Prior booking recommended via an eventbrite link.

All visitors get a chance to vote for their favourite artist, with a certificate going to the person with the most votes at the end of the final day.

From early July, our BAF Online taster exhibition features up to 3 pieces of work from all our Big Art Fair artists - pieces that will be on show at the Big Art Fair itself. Our 2021 event flipbook and video are now available.
