The Affordable Art Fair Battersea! A fun and quirky Mother's Day gift idea / day out

The AAF ( Affordable Art Fair) is at Battersea Park from the 12 - 15th March

Perfect for a Mother's Day outing!!

The March event encourages visitors of all ages through its doors and little ones won't be short of things to do. Kids aged 2-10 can be dropped off at the "outstanding" ofsted rated crèche complete with arty activities!!
With the little ones taken care of, that leaves you to wander around and browse at your own leisure!
They also have activity packs and a packed programme of hands on work shops to keep children aged 4-11 entertained!! 

The fair, which showcases a huge array of paintings, original artist-made prints, sculpture and photography is the ideal place to start or build an art collection.


Now into its 16th year with 111 events across 11 countries, 1,300 exhibiting galleries and 232,000 visitors, the Affordable Art Fair is as vibrant and diverse as ever! Priding itself on making art accessible for everyone, the fair offers the chance to find art that reflects each buyer's passion whatever the budget.

The Art Voucher scheme allows you to purchase gift vouchers (ahem ahem Mother's Day ahem ahem) to spend at the fair! 
Artworks are all priced between £100 and £5,000
