Greenwich: Art & Craft Stalls At Cutty Sark Gardens Start This Weekend

Arts and crafts traders will showcase their wares at a new market in Greenwich this summer. The specialist markets will be open on weekends in Cutty Sark Gardens from August 11. Stalls will be up for business from 11am - 6pm each weekend until early September.

The markets have been organized by Greenwich Town Centre Management in partnership with Greenwich Space Management, and will be an added attraction to the covered market which will open as usual.

While shopping, you'll also be entertained by a host of performers. This Saturday (August 12), they'll be free entertainment to keep children amused including face painting and a puppet show, followed by a craft workshop on Sunday (August 13).

Follows is the program of events to look out for:

Weekend of August 18 & 19: Entertainment Market: dancing demonstrations by the Manor Majorette Youth Dance Troupe and the Divine Steel Band along with the sounds of the Samba Corvocado Music Group.

Bank Holiday Weekend (August 26-28): Children's face painters, crafts and workshops for children (free) and various dance demonstrations.
