The registration fee is non-refundable & payment MUST be made at the point of registration.

Peckham Festival does not provide public liability insurance; please ensure that this is in place. For further advice and information please visit and select what would best suit your circumstances. Artists exhibiting at home are advised to have at least 2 people present during visiting times.

We encourage any creatives to hold workshops at their studios during the event. We will list these in the festival brochure as well as the Open Studios brochure. We suggest you use a booking site such as Eventbrite to confirm bookings. Maximise interest by keeping the attendance fee of workshops low (around £5) or free.

Don't forget to do your own marketing
Being part of the Open Studio event promotes you to a new audience, but do not forget to do your own marketing to put out to your mailing list and followers. We will supply a press pack, which you are most welcome to use.

Thanks for your support of Peckham Festival!
