About our venues


This year, our autumn market will form part of Peckham Festival. 

CLF Art Cafe is a large venue which forms part of the Bussey Building, a former cricket bat factory turned nightclub / arts space / theatre in thriving Peckham, South London. The market takes place on the 1st & 2nd floors of the building. There is no longer any natural light at this venue - lighting is via strip lights in the ceiling so traders are recommended to bring their own lighting if required. 

The bar is open during the markets and there will be a selection of creative workshops and DJs. This market forms part of Peckham Festival which is anticipated to bring a lot of people into the area.  The Uncovered section can be found on the 2nd floor of the venue. 

The short film below will give you a feel for our Peckham venue (please note there are no longer windows on the 2nd floor of this venue): 

Brixton - Design Circus

Design Circus is a playful weekend event brought to you by Crafty Fox Market and curated by Emy Gray of BRIXI. Bringing all the fun of the fair, this interactive market event showcases the finest designers, artists, free-thinkers and makers from their vast creative armoury. Expect a theatrical line-up of roaming performers, interactive installations and drop-in workshops. All housed in Squire and Partners’ spectacular new Brixton home – The Department Store. 

What we are looking for at Design Circus

We are looking for emerging and established creators, makers, designers, doers and free-thinkers to join our DESIGN CIRCUS. We want you to surprise and delight us with innovative and original works.   This is a great opportunity to showcase new and exciting pieces that reflects the calibre of the event and venue.    A theatrical and experimental collaboration, DESIGN CIRCUS is the perfect platform to show us what you’re made of!

In addition we are asking you to produce a special ‘EDITION’ for the event – a product that is made in a limited number especially for DESIGN CIRCUS to in some way reflect the ‘LOVE IS POWER’ theme of this year’s Brixton Design Trail.  This is NOT compulsory but we'd love your suggestions!

There will be a £1 entry charge for visitors to this event (children free).
