“Our quality outdoor fairs offer a great day out for crafters in a beautiful setting.”
This will be our second year at Leighton Hall where our events continue to be successful. This is an exciting new format with plant nurseries coming together with quality craftspeople of all kinds from jewellers, artists, candle makers, card makers, wood turners and carvers. Local food producers will help to create a great day out for all the family.
We anticipate footfall in excess of 1,000 in 2017 as our reputation for high quality events grows to attract audiences from both counties of Cumbria and Lancashire. Prior to 2016, the format was of a Historic House Car Boot Sale run at the same time of the year which attracted a high footfall for over six years at the previous venue of Sizergh Castle.
The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global network of volunteers, responding to natural disasters, conflicts and individual emergencies, enabling vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help people to recover and move on with their lives. The British Red Cross organises a series of craft and gift fairs throughout the year across the United Kingdom.
