All of our fairs are free for visitors to attend. We don’t believe in “charging an entry fee”. 

We carefully select our stallholders to give a wide variety of crafts for you to browse, with no more than two or three stalls selling the same craft at each event.

Our events are exclusively for local and handcrafted items – we do not accept resellers or franchises.

There will be good value, sometimes handmade refreshments on offer at our events, with a small seating area for you to enjoy them, (6 to 18 chairs with tables) although you are welcome to take them with you when you browse. We offer a selection of hot and cold drinks and both sweet and sometimes savoury snacks. Our cheese straws are very popular and usually sell out by lunchtime!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you accessible by public transport?

There is a small area of seating if you wish to sit down to enjoy your purchase, but you are welcome to browse the stalls with your drinks. Please be careful to keep anything that may damage our stallholders stock away from their tables.

Can I bring my own food and drink to the fair?

You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks to the event. Please be careful to keep anything that may damage our stallholders stock away from their tables. Please feel free to use the chairs and tables provided. 

Are children welcome?

Yes children are most welcome at our events and our friendly stallholders will be glad to show them their work. Some of our stallholders give demonstrations of their craft on their stall.
Please be mindful that there are sometimes delicate products such as glass and ceramics on display, so we would be grateful if you could keep children close to you at all times.

Are your venues suitable for wheelchair users?

Our venues have been selected to be wheelchair and pushchair accessible. Sometimes this may be through an alternative to the front door, but our front door is manned throughout the whole event by our staff who can advise you where to enter the building if there are steps at the main entrance.
We arrange our tables to give plenty of room for both wheelchairs and pushchairs down every aisle so that everyone can visit every stall.  NEW WIDE RAMP for Shere village hall at front door now.
