Clove HitchIt says something about the health of a city’s creative scene when it’s in danger of having as many art and craft fairs as Tesco Metros.

So we’re happy to let you know of the latest: at the city’s newest drinking and dining venue of note, the Clove Hitch (it’s where the old El Macho used to be, god rest its Chimichangas).

This Sunday, then, it’s the official start of the Christmas fairs season – with local jewellery, artwork, prints, cards, and textiles for sale, and, also on show, the lovely people who made them (probably not for sale. Although some might have their price)

Hope Street just got even more enticing. The organisers hope to make this a regular event. But, of course, that’s up to you…
