Dirthouse is a creative hub which specialises in boutique markets, festivals and live music. Whether you’re looking to run a small craft market or multi-stage music festival, we can tailor a package to suit your needs and budget.
Planning and consultancy
We’ll work with you to plan your event, advising on safety, compliance, licensing and logistics.
Bookings and management
Whether it’s a music stage or a makers’ market, we can take away the hassle by sourcing and booking acts and traders.
Marketing and design
We offer graphic design services, including production of banners and flyers, and branding and marketing advice.
Our markets showcase the best local artisan makers, growers and producers. There’s no better way to rejuvenate a town centre than to provide a platform for local micro-businesses, who in turn bring trade to the area.
We operate regular pop-up markets in London N2. Please get in touch if you’d like to trade at one of our markets or organise a market in your town.

With over 50 years’ experience between them in live music, festival and event management and marketing, the Dirthouse team is ready to offer you a tailor-made solution to plan and manage your event.
