Following its success over the past year, the Guerrilla Art Market is returning this Christmas. The perfect opportunity to get handmade, unique gifts for everyone’s Christmas stockings, the Guerrilla Art Market promises to deliver the best in art and hand crafted goods from the south coast.

Open Houses and Studios weekend - in Eastbourne

This weekend the 5th and 6th December Eastbourne artists and makers open their doors for the Christmas Open Houses and Studios weekend.

Eastbourne is relatively new to this and it is only the second year of the Open Houses so there are lots of new places to visit and new work to see. There is a wide range of work and lots of mince pies and mulled wine too.

Eastbourne is not so large and many of the open houses are within walking distance of one another and the trail takes in many of Eastbourne's beautiful streets and buildings as well as the unspoilt seafront.

For full details and a map please visit the website http://www.eastbourneartists.co.uk/ or phone for details 01323 643727. Free colour brochures with all the open houses and maps are available at venues throughout Eastbourne including the Tourist Information Centre.
