About the Event
Are you a local creative? We are looking for stall holders for Newcastle's new Handyside Arcade Alternative Market. So if you sell the following: vintage clothing, accessories, vinyl, art, crafts, alternative clothing, crafts and jewellery we want to hear from you. Are you an artist from the North East or living in the North East? Do you want a chance to sell and showcase your work?? Then get on board, we want to hear from you too!
Handyside Arcade Market is located in the spacious atrium of Newcastle City Library in the heart of the city so plenty of footfall. And forget that old image of libraries being stuffy places, with our resident DJ (and co founder!) playing the best of Indie, Mod, Punk, Ska and 60s sounds on vinyl, the Atrium will be filled with music! The market takes its name from Newcastle's original Handyside Arcade. The arcade was the home of Newcastle's sub cults and was where the Mods, Suedeheads, Punks, Hippies and Goths would gather on a weekend to hang out. The arcade was filled with small, independent shops managed by local creatives. We are trying to create a little bit of that magical time in our new Handyside Arcade Market. So you local creatives, get involved we can't wait to meet you!
* Note a small amount of the booking fee goes towards sponsoring a stall for new North East talent, the criteria being they must be based in the North East and this must be their first stall. If you would like to nominate a creative then please email us at email@example.com
** Note we are not a foodie market, we do not take bookings from foodie sellers, sorry!
