Graham Stone’s paintings will be on display

The Dalston Arts Fair is back later this month for the third year running.

Thirty local artists and makers will exhibit and sell their work over the weekend of 30 November and 1 December.

The Fair takes place at Grade II-listed St Mark’s Church Hall on Colvestone Crescent, opening 11am until 7pm on the Saturday and 10am until 5pm on the Sunday.

The free-to-enter exhibition offers visitors a chance to meet local artists and purchase their work directly.

Diane Ambida is one of six ceramic artists from Dalston’s famous Glebe Road studios who will be at the Fair

On display this year are paintings, drawings, photographs, collages and ceramics – including work by six artists from Dalston’s iconic Glebe Road studios.

There will also be jewellery, embroidery, accessories and homeware on show and up for sale.

Homemade lunches, tea, cake and muled wine will be available throughout the weekend at affordable prices.

Dalston Arts Fair takes place from 30 November to 1 December at St Mark’s Church Hall, Colvestone Crescent, E8 1LJ.


The coronavirus outbreak sadly means the Hackney Citizen is unable to print a monthly newspaper for the first time in its 12-year history.

At a time when independent and trusted news is more important than ever, this was an incredibly difficult decision to have to make.

Without print advertising, our major source of income, a one-off donation from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the website and social media feeds running through this unprecedented crisis.

When Hackney and the wider world has fought off this virus and we return to some semblance of normality, the print edition will be back.
