Visiting Hampstead for the third consecutive year, this year’s economy-sensitive fair has been moved to June in the hope that the weather will allow visitors – around 20,000 are expected – to make the most of the scenic surroundings.

More than 100 galleries participate, plus hundreds of handpicked artists. One of them, Egle Jauncemaite, has been appointed artist in residence, with a mandate to interact with visitors and create new, woven artworks as part of the on-site exhibition for emerging talent, Ways of Seeing.

Although the categories divide the wares into works below £250, £500 and £3,000, there’s plenty for those who can’t buy anything: artist-led workshops, informal talks and tours and hands-on printmaking classes are all on offer, with an emphasis on a family-pleasing atmosphere.
