January News!

Happy New Year!
Hope you have all had a great Holiday. I've been busy developing the new Curiosity.Haus website with an extensive section on our markets to make applying and finding out all our information even easier. It's looking great and will be finished in a few weeks time, when I will also be announcing all our exciting plans for 2011. You can still visit our old website here.

Meanwhile, thank you to everyone who exhibited and came along to visit our Christmas markets at Sneinton Market and Broadway Cinema. Both turned out to be excellent days and the quality of crafts and design on offer was amazing! As part of the new website, I have been creating flickr sets to archive all our past events over the past 2 years. This is proving to be a time consuming task but it will be worth it! Take a look at the events uploaded so far: The pics of the snowy November market at Sneinton Square look lovely! Broadway Christmas Fair images will also be added soon. You can still check out photos of our other past events on this blog. If you are on Flickr too, add us as a friend!

2011 Events
Thanks to everyone who has emailed about our upcoming markets. As Sneinton Square is being redeveloped, we are currently feeling a bit homeless. The plan is to hold a Valentine's market on the weekend of 12th/13th February and I am currently in discussion with new venues to house our event! This of course means the application and selection process will have a very speedy turn around. I will be sending out information at the end of this week.
