Nothing New is returning to the Minories for its third year. A fair with a difference selling only goods that have been recycled, upcycled or pre-loved. We have invited makers, artists, crafters, vintage and bric-a-brac sellers and other friends and supporters to come up with inventive ways to repurpose old items and give them a second life or a new function. We have added a twist and asked them to be creative with their pitches too and sell their work and goods from blanket stalls, bike basket or suitcase pitches for something between an art fair and a car boot sale only much friendlier to the environment. These fun compact stalls will be crammed with goodies. Anything goes but everything created or sold must have been pre-loved and ready for a new loving home! We have a wonderful array of stall holders joining us to make this a truly unique event.

This year we are being joined by our regular stall holders from The Bazaar making this an even bigger event! The Bazaar is a monthly market run by local designers, makers, artists and food producers from around Colchester. The Bazaar is a dynamic grass roots event held alongside workshops, exhibitions and live music to give makers the opportunity to promote their work.

Hopefully in our own small we way we will be able to have a positive impact on the environment and stop sending as much waste to landfill. And if nothing else it may prompt us all to think a little more before throwing that old item away.

The fair will thread through our beautiful walled garden and throughout our ballroom and the upstairs areas which are not always open to the public.

We really hope you will join us and help make this a fun and creative event. If you would like to be involved in our day or have a stall at Nothing New we would love to hear from you.
