An antique and bricabrac market will be held at the Foundry Gallery in Lewes on Saturday February 7 to raise money the charity Artemis Arts from 9am to 2pm.

Residents can have a clear out and sell all their clutter or grab a bargain at the Brocante, Antique and Bricabrac market.

Money will go towards providing art workshops for schools.

Organiser Wenda Bradley said: “We hope that people will book a stall and bring their treasures and trash to sell.

“We already have furniture and bricabrac stalls as well as several people selling the contents of attics and garages.

“If you don’t want to sell, come any time and pick up a bargain.”

After a very successful year of exhibitions and events at the Foundry Gallery in North Street, Artemis Arts is raising funds to provide art based workshops for schools in the future.

The Brocante is the group’s winter fundraiser and should attract a lot of visitors..

Refreshments will be available. Indoor stalls or spaces are still available as it is a large area at only £12 per space.

Bookings can be made by emailing artemis-arts@macdream.net or phoning 07752 557335 or 01273 486595
