Top Town Market is not just a place to shop and chat. It’s a space where exciting and inspiring artwork awaits.

The current exhibition is the outstanding Grimbarians exhibition – a photography project that tells the unseen stories of the people who make Grimsby a special place. It’s on until the end of October, so drop in while you still can.

From November, you can see the Freddie Frinton exhibition, which was originally exhibited at Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre.
