The fair, which was first launched in 2015, is one of the largest in the East of England with prices ranging from £40 to £25,000.

The event has been organised by artists Will Teather and Brian Korteling and runs until Sunday, December 2 and their work will also be on display.

Will’s paintings have exhibited internationally to acclaim and he is also the artist-in-residence at Norwich Arts Centre.

Will said: “I had been taking part in large scale art fairs around country for years and realised there wasn’t any large art events which were a hub bringing people from elsewhere.

“An art fair is different to an exhibition as it’s larger, has loads of artists and is also a chance to meet the artists in person.

“People all gathered together creates a certain energy and it has a catch it while you can feel as it’s only for a few days which creates a buzz.”

The event runs at St Andrews Hall, Norwich, from 10.30am to 5.30pm on November 30, 10.30am to 6pm on December 1 and 10.30am to 5pm on December 2.
