The Handmade Christmas Fair: limited VIP ticket offer

Catch the crafting bug at The Handmade Christmas Fair with Kirstie Allsopp

20th-22nd November, Manchester Central

Kirstie Allsopp is on a mission to get the nation crafting in time for Christmas, and The Handmade Christmas Fair is full to the brim with opportunities to buy, make, and learn from some of the finest crafters around.


This isn’t your average craft market – it’s a long weekend of hands-on workshops, entertaining interviews, demos, and all the shopping for handmade Christmas gifts, craft supplies and fabulous food you can manage. Plus Kirstie will be there every day to host some of the sessions and, of course, craft!


The Super Theatre will host interviews with some of the hottest crafters around, including The Great British Sewing Bee’s Deborah Simms, Michelin starred chef James Mackenzie, Coronation Street star turned cheese maker Sean Wilson, and gift wrapping guru Jane Means. Choose from four Skill Workshop areas – Decorations, Family Crafts, Gifts and Wrapping, Tags & Cards – where you can try your hand at a range of techniques, and Grand Makes where you’ll do a simple make with 200 other crafters so you can get social with crafters of all ages and abilities.

It’s the perfect place to polish your crafting skills, or try something completely new.
