MarketPlace, has you at its heart. Our mission is to work with local people to create exciting, innovative and fun creative experiences across the unique landscape of Fenland and the Forest Heath area of West Suffolk.

We are part of the Creative People and Places programme, developed by Arts Council England with support from National Lottery funds.

Rivers of Light returns to Newmarket!

Save the date, 24 February at 6pm

Get ready to experience a magical journey lit by enchanting willow lanterns along Newmarket’s Yellow Brick Road footpath which runs alongside a rare and ancient chalk stream.

Creativity is a vital part of everyday life. We want more people to have the chance to create and experience high quality and ambitious arts in the places where they live.
