Crafty Vintage is back!

05 Apr 2016

On Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 April, artisans from all over the North West will descend on Brockholes as the always popular Crafty Vintage returns with their first fair of the season!

Expect a rather splendid weekend on our floating Visitor Village, which will be filled to the rafters with a magnificent showcase of talent from the finest creators, collectors and producers in the land, as Crafty Vintage bring their magnificent mixture of merriment and quirkiness back to Brockholes.

There will be over 70 stalls of vintage classics, collectibles, handicrafts, which include individual creations from carpenters, artists, illustrators, florists, silversmiths, candlemakers, cooks and bakers, who represent a collective of some of the most creative folk in Lancashire. It is just £2 per person, with under 16’s gaining entry for free.


Director of Crafty Vintage David Johnson said: “We have been hosting fairs here at the reserve for almost five years and they have become extremely popular indeed, attracting thousands of visitors from all over the UK.

“People would much rather shop local and support these small creative and thriving businesses who work extremely hard to offer their vast selection of wares.

“Crafty Vintage has become a regular social gathering where like minded folk can meet, socialise, share ideas and gather inspiration, which is why so many people love to come along to our fairs and enjoy a family day out, catch up with friends and make new ones.”


Brockholes Events Manager Sarah Leach is equally excited. She said: “Crafty Vintage weekends are always amongst the busiest and most fun that we have here at Brockholes! They combine a brilliant family atmosphere with genuinely original and innovative offerings and we are looking forward to another amazing weekend this Saturday and Sunday.”

There will also be a free crafty corner and faceprinting, a marvellous magician, a pop up cocktail bar, live entertainment, dj’s on vinyl, classic cars, a vintage photo booth and retro hairdresser, together with a vast selection of street food and a farmers market that have helped establish has made Crafty Vintage a firm favourite with our regulars here at Brockholes.
