Worth for a visit if you are fed up with the high-street mass production goods. It is a cool place to explore something fresh, nice and unique with affordable price, perhaps an up-n-coming designer piece!

The fete is much bigger now than it was in 2012 (the first year it was held), with lots more activities and stuff on sale by current students, alumni and staff. Ceramics and Jewellery always have amazing stands, and there are always unique gifts, large and small. And students' work is usually much cheaper than at show time! It's a fantastic way to support RCA students and find gifts you can't find in any shop. Definitely worth visiting next week!

Hi Noma,

I went to the show last year it was very inspiring, there were many bright new designers and makers selling their stuffs at a good price! Worth to hv a look!

It was in the Royal college if Art campus not outside Royal Acedemy tho, prehaps u went to the wrong place?


Very disappointing! It isn't really a market, just a small gazebo outside the Royal Academy. The students sell nice stuff but the place is so small that is worth a visit only if you're already around South Kensington for the museums etc.
