13 – 14 October – Burghley House, Stamford, Lincolnshire

20 – 21 October – Thorseby Park, Ollerton, Notts.

27 – 28 October – Avalon Faerie Fayre, Glastonbury Town Hall, Somerset

If you live anywhere near Glastonbury then the wonderfully talented artist Ed Org will be at the Faerie Fair at Glastonbury on 10-11th March. Celebrated and practically legendary faery artist Brian Froud and his equally talented model-making wife Wendy Froud will also be attending as well as all the other usual artistic suspects.   If you love fantasy art then this is the place to be.  If you are not familiar with artist Ed Org’s amazing work then look here.  If you are really unsure about any of it then you can also find artist Brian Froud’s art here and Wendy Froud art here.

Ed Org June and August dates

If you want to catch the immensely talented artists Ed Org in person then you’ll need to trundle off to one of the places we gave for May or go to Marlborough Town Hall in Wiltshire on 26th June.  If  Wiltshire doesn’t grab you then East Sussex in August is another possibility to meet the great Ed Org at the Herstmonceux Medieval Fair at Hertsmonceux castle from 28 – 30th August. 

Be sure to let him know how you knew he was there.  In the meantime, if you still haven’t got a copy of his amazing book or need a new print for that bare wall then just click here.
