The international art fair will this year take place at St Andrew's Hall, in Norwich, from December 2 to 4.

Among the exhibitiors will be everyone from dealers in editions by Damien Hirst and Banksy to those offering work from the Norwich School of Painters. In total about 75 artists will be featured in the exhibition, including artists from across the UK and from other countries around the world including the USA, Germany, Lebanon and France.

The fair was founded by Will Teather and Brian Korteling, who will both be exhibiting work.

Mr Teather said: 'We have a passion to get people more involved in art, to value it and cherish it. I believe this will be the first time that signed editions of work by the likes of Damien Hirst and Banksy will be available in the region.'
