Art For Macmillan's Indoor Market Exhibition commenced on Monday 2nd June and continued until 31st Dec.  The market, with a front entrance on King Street and a rear entrance on Market Street provides a base in which artists, crafters and designers who help raise funds for Macmillan can exhibit their work and give live demonstrations of their talents. The market is conveniently located close to other places  around Southport where our fundraising art demonstrations also take place.
