Everything to See, Shop & Do in September

It’s an artistic affair this September as we hunt down the best things to see, shop and do. From artisanal makers taking over our boutiques, to sculpture and design festivals, and life drawing to get stuck in to - take this as your sign to flex those creative muscles.

1. The September Stalls at Camperdown Lane

Hereford-based boutique Camperdown Lane is opening its doors on 30th September to a selection of local businesses for their event, The September Stalls. You can expect delicious fresh produce, vintage homewares, jewellery, ceramics, and so much more from the likes of Wye Organic, Frank’s Yard, Gemma Gough Jewellery and Faye Wellon Ceramics. Whether kicking off your (dare we say it) Christmas shopping, or looking for something to spruce up your home this Autumn, there’ll be something for everyone.
