This weekend is the last weekend of the Christmas 2019 AOH festival! Don’t miss the last chance to visit Artist Open Houses for all your Christmas shopping needs and more!
Brighton, Hove and beyond artists are opening their front doors. This Christmas 60 Open Houses invite you inside to browse, shop and mull, over a warming glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.

See what’s on

The Christmas Artists Open Houses create a special atmosphere, where you can chat to artists and makers in their homes and studios, whilst viewing a spectacular selection of individual, hand-made arts and crafts. Don’t miss a lounge filled with Christmas trees, decorated with ceramic flowers and crocheted Brussels sprouts! See locally sourced pheasant feathers transformed into glamorous festive headdresses! While children can print their own T-shirts, visit a Santa’s Grotto and decorate some gingerbread.

The festival is also a community event and includes artists with learning disabilities, artists who have experienced periods of homelessness and a group representing creative ageing activities, alongside established, professional artists and makers, as well as young and emerging artists.

The Christmas Artists Open Houses festival provides a fantastic opportunity to shop away from the High Street and buy unique Christmas gifts in inspiring environments. Kick off the festive season by picking up unique and original Christmas gifts for friends, family – or for yourself!
