Our next Festival of Crafts takes place on Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 October, 2022.

This autumn festival showcases the UK's finest artisans. For the past 25 years the annual 2-day event has featured a curated selection of handmade crafts across all media, including homewares, jewellery, ceramics, stationery, accessories, furniture, lighting, textiles and print.

The festival champions great design and the process of making, both traditional and modern techniques and skills. This show offers a relaxed environment for visitors to browse and meet and buy directly from the makers.

Applications for exhibitor stands are now open. Please click here for more details and to apply online.
