Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November 2022

10.30am – 5.00pm

St Bartholomew’s Church, Ann Street, Brighton, BN1 4GP


MADE BRIGHTON at St BARTHOLOMEW’S is returning in November 2022  to the stunning St Bartholomew’s Church.

This show is a little different – whilst still showing the best makers in the country, the St Bartholomew’s fair is a down to earth ‘Village Hall’ two day, table-top selling event.

MADE BRIGHTON should return to the Brighton Dome – Corn Exchange Xmas 2023 when the extensive renovations to the building are finally completed (renovations are still overrunning by some considerable time but are scheduled to complete later this year)


Our venue is St Bartholomew’s Church, a stunning late Victorian Byzantine inspired church. Known to some as the Noah’s Ark Church, because of the local legend that it was built to the same dimensions as the Ark.

It is the tallest parish church in Europe and as such the Church is a truly awe-inspiring space .

We’ll be using the main body of the church to show sixty makers, exhibiting a wide variety of original work; jewellery, knitwear, ceramics, wood, print, silversmithing, textiles, clothes, toys and more.

200 metres of festoon lights illuminate the nave, as well as exhibitors’ lights make for a magical setting for our Christmas show.


  1. Visit our shop – gallery – making space on Brighton Seafront  ATELIER BESIDE THE SEA. The new venue spans 3 large newly renovated arches right in the middle of Brighton Beach and comprises a shop, 2 gallery spaces and a classroom. We have a full program of talks, classes, events, films, workshops and exhibitions each week. Visit our website for whats on.
  2. It’s well worth the walk down to the seafront – exhibitions change every 6 weeks.

  Lovely show, great location, brilliantly central, gorgeous building, gorgeous people and gorgeous work
