Chosen by a selection committee including former Turner Prize nominee Yinka Shonibare, the fourth year of the Other Art Fair has, according to Director Ryan Stanier, attracted a “particularly high” calibre of artists, with a “whole new look” planned for Ambika P3 this time around.

That includes Photo 15 – a section specifically devoted to photographers among the ton of unrepresented artists – and an affordable print shop, interactive art sessions for children, activities run by some of the artists and cupcakes, cocktails and food.

There’s also live tattooing by Mo Coppoletta – an artist who has created four bespoke designs for the fair in the hope that visitors will have “a huge dose of courage and determination”. Perhaps this really is the week to show some skin.

Open 11am-7pm (6pm Sunday). Tickets £6/£3. Book online
