Each PromArt event is welcoming, friendly and quirky with the atmosphere of a European street market. Buskers play and perform for passers-by; exhibitors demonstrate their work; there are benches to take the weight off your legs; a café for those all important refreshments; a stunning herbaceous border; a vintage lido building exhibiting Grange old and new; and fascinating views across salt marsh and Morecambe Bay.
Visiting PromArt is free, and provides a very worthwhile few hours of enjoyment for people of all ages who are interested in art and craft in lovely locations.
To ensure the sustainability of PromArt with the fantastic support from its members, PromArt became a Community Interest Company commonly known as a CIC and is run as not for profit company with all profits reinvested to grow the event.
The day to day running of PromArt is taken on by the director and oversight committee who are elected into office by the PromArt members at the annual AGM.
The current elected director is Ian Middleton who is supported by an oversight committee made up of Susan Hinde-Dain, Alan Jones & Derek Seward. The committee also benefit from the wealth of experience of long term committee member Sam Spodofora who now serves as an advisor to the committee.
