“The destination for independent shopping and creative arts in Coventry is on its way.”

Opening on 27th September 2014, Fargo Village will bring a whole new dimension to the city offering niche and unique retailers, artists’ studios, creative workspace, crafts, cafes, markets and entertainment space. Affordable rents will allow new businesses to set up, thrive and survive in an attractive environment, in a community of like minded people.

We are bringing a piece of the London cool scene of Camden and Brick Lane to Coventry. Twenty years ago these were run down areas of London but with investment into the creative industries they have now become major attractions bringing in visitors from all over the world and in turn supporting the local economy. To emulate some of that success here would give Coventry a huge boost in perception and appeal to locals and visitors. Fargo Village will inject energy and fun into Coventry.”

Denise Startin, former graduate of Coventy University and recent graduate of the Royal College of Art, MA Printmaking 2013 will be holding an Open Studio at the launch weekend where elements of her MA Show will be on display. Unit 2J is upstairs on the balcony at the rear of the Market Hall.
