The craft calendar is a great way of searching for content by date. You get to see all event types in one place, you can look a specific day or use one of the saved searches like, this or next weekend. When we first put together the calendar for the site it was quite a simple affair, you could just search one day at a time. Also the calendar is now more flexible, so can be used on multiple screen sizes. In addition, the information in the calendar is SEO friendly. The calendar has a few extras too. We have key dates throughout the year like, bank holidays, national days, religious days and other special days. Also, you will see information about famous British artists and crafts people born on the day you are looking at.

We like to start the working week on a Monday but in the craft community the weekends are when almost all craft fairs take place, often extended by bank holiday weekends.

Understanding the calendar

At the top and left on larger screen is the calendar itself, it shows a month at a time with weekends highlighted, along with the dates selected. Old dates (dates in the past) are greyed out. You can use the dropdown to view the key, so you understand what the colours mean. As a UK company promoting UK events we use the standard Gregorian calendar. 365 days in a year plus leap years. This calendar is based around the sun, to help keep seasons the same or similar each year. It has been around since 1582, so we think it is here to stay.

This was a Christian calendar that made a very small change to stop the Easter celebrations moving further away from the equinox. The changes were made by Pope Gregory the eighth, a lot of countries adopted this new calendar immediately but none Catholic counties followed later with the Greeks only adopting it in 1923.

Things to come

We are interested in new ways of searching and the types of search people may want to make in this structured page. We are looking to add weekly, and monthly searches.
