May 2023 – Feeback
Thank you once again Fraser for another fantastic weekend at Goodwood and supporting Sussex Wildlife Trust at this event. We all really enjoyed the event. I am delighted to let you know that we sold a staggering 32 pieces over the weekend so a fantastic £1,600 raised to help us protect the wildlife and green spaces of Sussex.
Louise (Sussex Wildlife Trust)
Thank you so much for organising and running such an incredible event. As this was my first Art Fair, I was quite apprehensive. However, the meticulous organisation of the event, the regular communication and the personal support I received from you enabled me to confidently present my work, chat with other artists and buyers and I sold six paintings including the one you purchased from me. A very successful and enjoyable weekend. Please pass my thanks on to your lovely, friendly and encouraging team.
Tracey Walker (Artist)
A big thank you to Sussex Art Fair. The team has been excellent and thank you to the visitors and customers, it was so much fun chatting to you all interested in my work. Five originals have gone to new homes, three to the same household! Major incentive to create more.
Zaza Lewis (Artist)
Thank you to everyone that stopped by to admire my work and for the wonderful comments and sales. Another well organised event by the Sussex Art Fair team!
Lorraine Finney (Artist)
Another fantastic Sussex Art Fair. Thank you to everyone who came to visit me. Thank you to old clients buying again, and to new collectors of my work taking pieces home to love! It was a blast!
Adele Riley (Artist)
Sussex Art Fair is the best organised one I’ve participated in. Fraser’s personable and helpful nature really shone through and it really felt like you’d thought hard about every little detail both in the lead-up to and during the fair – much appreciated. I have been scouted by a gallery, so thank you.
Clare Emily (Artist)
Hi Fraser & The Team, Just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for the great show. I made several sales and would love to be back next year, hopefully sharing again with Lorna Beard Studios. As per your Results email it definitely felt busier than the previous year and thankfully people were in a buying mood even with the cost of living crisis.
Tricia Findlay (Artist)
Just wanted to say a huge thank you! My first Art Fair couldn’t have gone better and it was all down to you and your team’s efforts. I had such a fantastic weekend and loved every minute. If in the unlikely event that a stand happens to become available for the Epsom fair I would love to be put on the waiting list.
See you soon!
Lucy Claw (Artist)
Congratulations on such a fantastic Art Fair – what a success! We can appreciate the amount of hard work that has gone into this to make it run so smoothly. It was a great insight to see what people were buying and also to have a quick chat with them and the artists whilst wrapping their artwork. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their experience at the fair.
Carol Caiger (Gallerist)
Thank you for the opportunity to exhibit at Goodwood. I had a wonderful time and sold 6 originals (1 to another exhibitor which is always wonderful when other artists see value in your craft). The event exceeded my expectations. I’d love to apply for next year when the time comes
Fiona J Rose (Artist)
Just to say a huge thank you to you and all the Team at Sussex Art Fair, for another successful event. As always you were all so supportive and helpful, and cheerful with it! Brilliant. Had a great time, got some really positive reaction from visitors to my work, met some lovely fellow artists, and made some very good sales too.
I’ve been with you for all 4 Sussex Art Fair events, and hope to return again next year.
Nancy Goodens (Artist)
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help over the past few days, it was much appreciated. Also wanted to say how impressed I was by the way you organised the show. All those little details such as the exhibitor pack and the promotion were noticed and I for one was impressed.
David Millidge (Artist)
Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team. Was a fabulous, buzzy atmosphere. Myself and Tony had a great time. Looking forward to Art Surrey at Epsom now! See you then.
Wendy Kimberley (Artist)
We attended the fair yesterday with my wheelchair bound young son. I just wanted to say what an amazing experience we had. The staff went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable and accessible. Thank you
Thank you so much for an amazing event. I did quite well in the end, enough to make me want to do another! I just want to say how helpful your team were. Vicky was absolutely incredible. She was so supportive and a joy to be around. In general, every one of the team that I met was great! The other exhibitors were also a joy to be with! Many thanks and lots of love to all.

Thank you once again for supporting Sussex Wildlife Trust at the art fair last weekend. I can confirm we sold an amazing 20 pieces raising £1,000 for the Trust. Please pass on our sincere thank you to everyone involved.
Sussex Wildlife Trust (Partner Charity)
Just wanted to thank you and your team so much for the fantastic fair last weekend!It was so brilliantly organised, we made great connections – can’t thank you all enough.
Alcazar (Art Storage)
Goodwood, for me, was a great success with 9 sales total, 1 which you know about for sure (thanks again for the purchase Fraser). Waiting to hear from a couple of possible after sales plus a potential commission has already made contact. I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and met lots of lovely people too.
Martin Rolt (Artist)
Hi Fraser, what a super event! I would like the opportunity to rebook the same stand position I held this year again so please do contact me when return bookings open.
Deborah Waters (Artist)
My mother, sister and I want to thank you for giving us a fantastic day out at the best show of art we have ever seen all in one place. For us it topped visiting the RA summer art exhibitions that we faithfully attend. It gave us all the greatest of pleasure, a fantastic piece of art to take home, inspiration, and utter joy at individual pieces that touched our hearts and souls. Everyone was so helpful, from car park attendants, tellers, security, and exhibitors. Your catalogue was exceedingly well laid out and of such high quality that our copies will be kept for referencing the artists in the future.
Jill Hough (Visitor)
Thank you for the invite, I took a friend and our two sons. We had the most amazing time viewing the vast array of fantastic art work and really enjoyed what is a rare opportunity to talk directly with many of the artists. My son was really impressed with the artists we spoke with who were equally really encouraging towards him and his ambitions.
Tracey, (Goodwood Staff)
My wife and I would like to thank you for your invitation to your event. The works on display were magnificent and we really enjoyed the diversity aswell as meeting the exhibitors. We purchased two works for our hallway! Thanks again and see you next year.
Damian and Shirley (Visitors)
Thank you Fraser, Oliver and to the team for pulling this together. You are a slick bunch. Whilst I haven’t planned too far into the future, do please add me onto your advance stand list so I can book again for 2022, and best wishes for the remainder of this year’s activity schedule.
Iti Das (Artist)
Thank you so much for organising and your clear communications! Please add me to the list for next year, I’d be delighted to participate again.
I’ve sold 2 paintings and have had an enquiry for a 3rd following on from the weekend. I’d like to try out a bigger stand next year please.
Sarah Beaven (Artist)
Just a quick note to say thank you for all of your hard work over the weekend. You did very well under difficult circumstances with the restrictions of Covid. Count me in for next year please. I think I’ll keep the same stand!
Diane Haddon-Moore MA (Artist)
Very many thanks once again for all you did last weekend. It was great to be back at a fair and to have the opportunity to meet customers face to face once again. We were happy with our sales overall and can see that the fair has plenty of potential for the future. We would love to join you next year and appreciate your offer to have us return.
A Heart of Glass (Exhibitor)
Thanks so much for all your hard work in making Goodwood 2021 such a fantastic show. I’m not surprised you need a break ! It was a great weekend for me with some really good sales… and a lot of fun to be out and about again talking all things arty! Have a great summer!
Tess Armitage (Artist)
We so grateful to all the artists who kindly donated an original piece of their work for us to sell at Sussex Art Fairs (West). Many had a wildlife or nature theme, & raised £1,500 for our charity. Thank you to Sussex Art Fairs, the artists & everyone who supported the event.

July 2021 – Feedback
Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of this. You are the FIRST Art Fair to have offered the clients and reusable packaging service!!! You guys are great at looking at what needs to change in the world & encouraging the art world to look at the wastage that is created at art fairs. Thank you so much & see you at the next one!
Soo Turner (artPAKK)
Thanks so much to the SAF team for all their hard work, you made the weekend a breeze and attracted a great range of visitors. After a run of numerous art shows around the country this was a real highlight and my best event of the year for sales. I can’t wait to exhibit again next year and have already booked my spot for the East Sussex event in October.
Grace Ellen (Artist)
A quick line to say how amazing the art fair was! All your hard work really paid off. The marketing and publicity over the months has been great and the layout of the stands was really good. The fair was so professional and the level of artwork was far superior to the Sandown, you definitely had the best of those artists at the Sussex Art Fair! It had a very great vibe on Friday evening and the artists were great to talk to and really passionate about their work.
Carol Caiger (Art Consulant)
An absolute smasher of a weekend. I am completely blown away by your commitment and dedication in making the fist Sussex Art Fairs a big success. I had no idea that a brand new fair could top my previous sales record at an art event. An absolute heartfelt thank you.
Martin Turner (Artist)
Thanks for putting on a great show! I made a lot of great contacts. My Instagram account increased more than 50 followers already. I think you guys did a great job with social media. I really enjoyed meeting the people who engaged me. I look forward to meeting more UK collectors.
Matthew Frock, (Artist)
The end of a fantastic weekend at the Sussex Art Fair West, a huge thank you to everyone who supported and visited the fair.
It’s so inspirational to meet and talk with the other artists and collectors.
Darius Rowland (Artist)
Congratulations this was a spectacular first Sussex Art Fair! I had so many people who visited telling me how inspiring it was to see all the talented artists work in one place! One gentleman said it had ‘lifted his heart to see all the beautiful art’ and several people just said they were overwhelmed by the choice and meeting all the wonderful artists. The team we’re just amazing and treated me so wonderfully I felt like I was apart of something very special! thank you Oliver and Leah your both incredible and so humble.
Susana Chauhan (Sales Executive)
We had a great time and learned a hell of a lot – it was worth it just for that.
Kate Welch (Artist)
13 pieces sold!! A lot of my neighbours were a bit jealous watching me wrapping up sales – ‘another sale’??! One said , ‘You even had a queue of purchasers at one point’! Thank you.
Thomas Petit (Artist)
Very successful for me, I had a good stand and made more than I’d ever done at any other art fair. The free art bags for the customers who bought was also a great idea, so overall very positive.
Jody Craddock (Artist)
I enjoyed the fair, it was well organised, well done for all your hard work.
Alison Ingram (Artist)
As an independent artist I was delighted to have been invited to participate in the first Sussex Art Fair at Goodwood recently. I found the event well organised, friendly and professional with constant support from the hands-on organisers. I was impressed with the quality of other artists around me and encouraged by the interest and interaction with knowledgable visitors. After a successful show I will definitely wish to return in 2020.
Andy Walker (Digital Artist)
A successful debut Art Fair which I am sure will become regular event at Goodwood Racecourse. Well done to Fraser, Oliver, Leah and Neto.
Deborah Waters (Artist)
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the art fair last weekend, and thank you for all your help. I had some sales that were orders rather than ‘off the wall’, and it is definitely one I would like to do again. The Atrium was a lovely area to be in and I would like to reserve the same stand for next year!
Jocelyn Horsfall (Artist)
Thank you so much for all your hard work . Goodwood was brilliantly organised and you did all you could to make it a fabulous show. I sold well , not quite as well as usual but even so I really enjoyed the weekend. I thought the demographic was friendly, interested and happy to buy art. I will definitely be there next year and would like to reserve a stand if possible.
Tess Armitage (Artist)
Thank you to you and the team for all your hard work and putting on a great fair. You made us feel incredibly welcome and your team were very helpful and accommodating. We passed on our feedback during the fair and having read your reflections, can see that you are intending to implement changes which will be very positive. On this basis, we would love to join you again next year and look forward to receiving details in due course.
A Heart Of Glass (Exhibiting Gallery)
I think it has great potential. The organisers certainly know how to put on a good art fair.
Dawn Reader (Artist)
Goodwood had a very professional feel to it, the game was upped and it showed, you guys did very well! There are people that will have regretted not doing this fair, the art buyers were very knowledgeable understanding the passion of the artist and it was a pleasure to talk to them and explain my work. The buyers came with money to spend! It is a fantastic venue with a deep history, I am looking forward to next year!
Gary Nicholls (Artist)
All of you were kind, friendly and hardworking. I know how challenging is to organise such a big event, plus exhibit there. Thank you for this great experience and I am wishing you best of luck for the upcoming ones.
Lucia Lajdova (Artist)
Really enjoyed it, thought you guys did a great job with the event. The location was fantastic I really liked the layout and the quality of the exhibitors was top notch.
R. Lelliot (Visitor)
Sussex Art Fairs at Goodwood was a well presented and professional event. Compared to other art fairs I have done, the majority of clientele were art enthusiasts with an interest in buying art. The team were helpful and supportive and I would love to partake again.
