Woodbridge Arts Market (WAM) @ The Tea Hut

We learned all about the upcoming Woodbridge Arts Market and had a chat with musician and busker Adam Thomas ahead of his performance

Woodbridge Arts Market (WAM) is returning after a successful first run in December 2020.

The market will take place in collaboration with The Tea Hut on the meadow behind the river wall in Woodbridge on the first Sunday of the month – Sunday 6 June, 4 July and 1 August – from 10am until 4pm.

There will be an array of stalls from local artists and makers and live music all day from our wonderful buskers, including local singer-songwriter Adam Thomas.

Adam released a ten-track album in 2020 and has become quite popular overseas in America, Australia and Europe. He describes his music as ‘chilled’ and ‘very acoustic’ and can’t wait to play some of his original tracks alongside some covers of hits from the 60s right through to popular current music at the festival, explaining that there’s “something for everyone”.

He told us: “The festival is a celebration of music and art so I kind of want to show off my own music too as well as celebrating songs that I love. Coming out to shows is really important right now. I know everyone wants to go out and see their friends and all that, but I think some people forget how important it is to support the music and arts industry right now and beyond. The music and arts industry is a life-saver to a lot of people. Let music live on!”

Market organisers Katharine Moore and Charmian Berry created W.A.M. in the midst of the pandemic to bring a Covid-safe event where local artists and makers could come and sell their work and musicians could play.

This pop-up event ticks all the boxes for a lovely day out by the river with colourful arts and delicious food and live music. Come along and support your local ARTS.

A donation from our first market will go to Ella’s Fight, a charity close to the hearts of Sharon and Brian at The Tea Hut.

We would ask all visitors attending this event to remain vigilant of social distancing and hand sanitiser will be available on all stalls. There is plenty of parking available in nearby car parks
