  • Living Crafts - A craft event with a difference

It is with great sadness that we have taken the very difficult decision not to go ahead with the postponed Living Crafts 2020 event in October. It is easy to become complacent and think that this dreadful virus is going away but the threat of Covid-19 remains and there is every possibility that it would have a devastating impact on the autumn event. The health and safety of our visitors and everyone connected to the event is of paramount importance and we feel it would be be irresponsible to hold the event under the current conditions.

The dates for Living Crafts 2021 are set for Thursday 6th - Sunday 9th May. We will focus our efforts on making sure that we can bring you a vibrant event with the buzz of workshops, great demonstrations, entertainment and a festival atmosphere better than ever before and give you the experience that you deserve.

We hope you keep well during this difficult time and that we can all look forward to a brighter 2021.
