The crafters and artists, plus some of the participants of our Crafting Futures Hubs, will also have an exhibition inside the Globe on the Friday night (details to follow), and have their wares for sale all weekend in their marquees.
NB = we only accept genuine handcrafted items made by the stallholders, no hand assembled items, only handmade using natural / sustainable / recycled materials. This ensures we keep celebrating the talent and skills of our local makers, and that all visitors have an opportunity to purchase their own unique creation to take home.
If you are a maker and would like an application form for a sales stand, or a workshops stand (we have funding to pay practitioners running workshops), or if you are a musician and would like to play here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also looking for buskers to play – the public can vote for their favourite each day – the winners will win vouchers for the bar!
