We are sorry to announce that Craft Your Easter is cancelled due to the ongoing situation in the UK with Corona Virus. We appreciate that the situation with regards to large public gatherings and events is changing daily, but in order to allow our attendees and stall holders enough time to plan, we have made the decision now to cancel rather than nearer the date of the event. 

We are currently working with Dunchurch Park Hotel to establish a new potential date for our craft fair and will communicate this to you all asap.

All workshop attendees have been issued refunds on 14 March, but these may take up to 7 days to reach your account from Eventbrite.

Please remember during the difficult days to come, filled for many of you I'm sure with uncertainty and anxiety too, that we should remember our local small businesses, who depend on your custom to stay afloat. All of our wonderful stallholders will still be offering online sales and a list of them can be found here. Please continue to give them your support. 

Our workshops will be back on the 28th & 29th November for Craft Your Christmas. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and we will hopefully see you soon at a Summer craft fair date TBC.
