Derby's Victorian Market Hall is one of FORMAT 13 Festival's official venues on the festival's launch event. The Market will be opening for trading on Sunday 10th March as part of the Photo Market event.
FORMAT's Photo Market is an eclectic and vibrant mix of offerings from both the local community, and also the wider photographic community. The Photo Market features celebrated book publishers, photo magazines, galleries and independent photobook producers set amongst a vast array of local merchants selling everything from puzzles to pyclets and flowers to fish hooks. FORMAT’s Photo Market is truly a market like no other.
Some exhibitors will remain in the Market for the Festival period - and will be included in visitor tours - but over 20 exhibitors will be situated in the Hall in vacant stalls on the launch weekend.
Generously supported by Derby Markets and Knight Security.
