The Greatest Small Show In Yorkshire!

Working Crafts Marquee 2018

Anyone interested in having a stall in the Craft Marquee should get in touch with Maureen Atkinson on 01937 845638 or email:

We are always looking for new exhibitors with original craft ideas but the main proviso is that the products that are being sold have to be made by the stall holder and not bought in to be re-sold. We also encourage the exhibitors to demonstrate their crafts if this is practical and most of our stallholders are able to do this. We think that this makes our craft marquee rather special and creates more interest from the public who in turn are probably more likely to buy the products.
