Advertising in Open Up Sheffield

Why advertise with us?

Open Up Sheffield has been running successfully since 1998 and has grown into one of the largest open studio events outside London.

Our local influence is significant, with around 100 – 120 artists taking part across the Sheffield, North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire region. We estimate around 5,000 people visit the open studios over the 5 day period of the event.

Our marketing activity comprises the distribution of 7,500 printed colour brochures, as well as the website and an active social media campaign. The brochures have shown great retention in the past, as people tend to keep hold of them long past the event itself.

For the right type of business, we believe advertising with Open Up represents a unique and valuable opportunity.
