Bayside Design Market

The Bayside Design Market provides the Bayside community with the opportunity to experience a quality design and maker market, while providing opportunities for local designers and makers to showcase their product. Join us for what will be a stunning autumnal day, in the grounds of beautiful Billilla mansion. The Christmas Market at Brighton Town Hall attracted an attendance figure of more than 600 people over the course of the day.

There will be a number of activities on the day (still to be finalised), which will include artist open studios. Biililla is the home of Bayside's Artist in Residence Program.
