Very interesting, I enjoyed seeing the various venders. Would be great to see more tours like this where artists are showcased and their online info shared.

Great fun - a walk through the Shambles Night Market looking at the work of independent artists. John is great a chatting to people, the stall holders were happy to discuss their work & give contact details. I love the idea of supporting the artists & have ordered some very original cards - My favourite is the giant T-Rex chomping on The Angel of the North. Really enjoyed this tour.
