If you have bought advance tickets or workshop tickets for Living Crafts in May, please click here to initiate your refund.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak and Government advice concerning mass gatherings, Living Crafts at Hatfield House is being postponed and will now take place from Thursday 8 - Sunday 11 October. We had not wanted to take this measure unless it was absolutely necessary but the health and safety of our visitors and everyone connected to the event is of paramount importance. It would clearly be irresponsible to hold the event under the current health guidance which we need to follow.

If you have already purchased an advance ticket or workshop ticket you will receive a full refund. This will be initiated by an email to the address you used for the purchase. We hope that you and your family stay healthy during this difficult time and we look forward to welcoming you to Living Crafts later in the year.
