Funyard Events was established in 2018 for small brands to showcase and sell their products throughout the South East of England and the West Midlands. It is now becoming an established national brand with over 100 events under our belt


We love featuring handcrafted items from local designers, makers and independent artist as well as small local businesses not related to crafts at our pop up and regular events in the UK. We add a touch of a difference to every event with a versatile approach and were one of a few events still managing to run in between of lockdowns.


Our events are vibrant and eclectic, celebrating the artists and their craftsmanship in their local community. We showcase a diverse range of talented artisans, each specialising in their unique and distinctive technique and crafts.


Visitors have the opportunity to interact with the artisans directly, learning about their creative process, the materials they use and stories behind their artwork. The personal connection enriches the overall experience and fosters appreciation for the craftsmanship involved.


You will usually find a selection of ceramics, beauty, prints, original paintings, jewellery, fashion, furnishings, bakery, candles, decoupage, wall hangings, illustrations, seasonal gifts, pet supplies, terrariums, textiles, woodwork, metalworks, upcycled products, glassware, pottery, floral arrangements, signed books, food etc. The attention to detail and personal touch in these creations make them unique and one of a kind.


We also specialise in vast indoor Christmas markets for your one stop festive shopping sprees. Our Portsmouth and Wickham Christmas Markets have been named two of the biggest and best magical Christmas Markets by Hampshire Live, Great British Life, Boutique Retreats and other media.


We help you bring your brand or craft business to premium locations. We provide a platform for local artisans to showcase their skills and connect with their community.

Gunwharf Quays Artisan Market Portsmouth Hampshire


This market is a great place to start your Christmas shopping and get into the festive mood

The organisers are beyond lovely and take care to give you the platform you need to showcase your work.

The footfall is much higher than most events I have been to and it's down to their amazing brand building and marketing. Fantastic!


I look forward to a long and profitable relationship with them.

This market has been phenomenal!

The market is fantastic!


Even got customers praising the advertising

These are my favourite events to do! So well organised, friendly & helpful staff on the day who genuinely care about their stall holders doing well. Always a great successful day, as the footfall they drive is brilliant! 

What is there to say about Funyard Events? EVERYTHING! Reliable doesn't cut it as they always push further and further every day and it truly shows at the markets.

I can highly recommend Funyard Events. I attended their Guildford market last year and it was extremely well organised. All the information I needed about the market came promptly and was very detailed offering advice on parking etc.


There was a great vibe amongst stallholders and the market had a good atmosphere. I am looking forward to being part of further markets organised by Funyard Events.

I conducted a thorough Funyard Events online search through Facebook, Instagram & Google. I was so satisfied with what I found that I booked a pitch at 2 events in Guildford

I felt on the day of the fair the organisation was top notch. Great promotion, a personable and friendly event organiser made all of the traders feel very welcomed and optimistic about the day. The venue staff were superb and very welcoming


I look forward to a long and profitable relationship with them.

We attended the Wickham Christmas Market.

A very well organised event, easy to communicate with the organisers and swift communication throughout. They had the appropriate amount of similar vendors for the size of the event.


Very much enjoyed and looking forward to working with Funyard Events again.

​Attended my first official event through Funyard Events.


I was initially nervous, as I didn’t know what to expect. However Stuart‘s guidance and advice was instrumental in achieving outstanding sales.


Looking forward to the next event.

I always look forward to Funyard Events markets. Not only are they professional they are extremely well organised and their advertising for their markets is great. 

Their communication with you is amazing and they are always happy to answer any query.

When I arrive and throughout the whole duration of the market they are really warm and welcoming.

We always look forward to Funyard Events. The organisers are good at actively promoting events and increasing footfall, bringing in great customers.


We have a great time at Funyard events as they are well organised, and the organisers are always on hand to support.


We would recommend Funyard Events to any craft trader as it is a great way to engage with customers as well as gain and share tips with other traders.

This has to be the most well organised company I've ever had the pleasure of attending, as a seller and a browser.

They are friendly and very helpful and because of their willingness to support their sellers, they attract the most friendly and supportive crafters/sellers in return.
