Apply For A Stall

Applications are now open for our spring fair at the Bluecoat on Saturday 9th May. Before submitting an application, please read over the information below to make sure the venue and event will attract your target audience.

Applications close 8pm on Sunday 9th February 2020.

The Venue

At the Bluecoat we have space for just 20 stalls, which makes it a more intimate and curated event.

The Bluecoat is Liverpool’s centre for the contemporary arts and the oldest in the UK. It’s a Grade 1 Listed building located in the heart of the city centre, home to a year-round programme of exhibitions, music, dance, literature, live art and heritage events.

You can expect the audience at the Bluecoat to have an understanding of different print methods such as etching, linocut, wood block, letterpress, and screen printing. This is thanks to the The Bluecoat Print Studio who are committed to promoting and facilitating the exploration of print.


First and foremost this event is a print fair and will be advertised as such to the public. The primary focus is unique and affordable art, so the majority products at the fair should be paper based art prints.

If you sell homeware and accessories alongside your prints as part of a collection, we’re happy for you to bring those along too. Products such as greetings cards or comics and zines are also very welcome at the fair.

At the Bluecoat stalls will be offered to people who create work using hands-on printing methods, over those who work solely in digital mediums. We’re looking for sellers with unique contemporary prints who avoid over-saturated trends.

We also make sure spaces are offered to a different variety of applicants each year to keep the event interesting for the public.
