Spring Fling 2021 Plans & Applications Open

We're thrilled to finally announce the first details of the Spring Fling 2021 event.

In light of the ongoing pandemic, we've been carefully planning to ensure that this year's event can go ahead in the safest possible way whilst still bringing that Spring Fling spirit we all love! 

The dates for this year's event are: 29 May - 6 June 2021
So save the date!

Whilst we can't completely return to an open studio format safely, we are building on the successes of 2020 to bring you a carefully curated line up of online events, including virtual studio tours, workshops and talks
Alongside this, a brand new Upland commission and the SF Pop-UP showcase will provide the opportunity for makers and local customers to meet, discuss and buy/sell work in a safe socially distanced manner, in line with Government COVID-19 Guidance.

We can also share that due to the unforeseen changes to last year's programme, Upland has offered all 2020 participants a place in this year's event if they would like it AND that this year, we've introduced a new way for artists and makers to take part with our Online Only option!

There's going to be so much to see and do! We're delighted to finally share our plans with you and to open applications. So stay tuned for more information over the coming weeks and months. 

Applications now open!!!

If you're an artist or maker and want to be a part of Spring Fling 2021, applications are now open!

Spring Fling is highly regarded as one of the UK’s most successful contemporary visual art and craft events with the event attracting over 140 000 visitors between 2003 and 2020 (and that doesn't even include online audiences!). Participating is a fantastic way of selling work and getting it seen by a wider audience.
