Welcome to MarketPlace

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.

Come and visit us as West End Park where you’ll find our MarketPlace tent with a whole host of activities for all the family from 10am – 4pm. Decorate you own St George’s wooden shield, or join in with some Dungeons and Dragons fun! Plus, we are hosting a medieval encampment with the likes of live armed combat, circus acts, falconry and puppetry performances!

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.
