Event Updates

We're Good To GoCraft In Focus have been awarded the We're Good To Go industry standard from Visit England, confirming it is adhering to the Government's Covid-19 re-opening guidance.

Sadly, we have had to cancel our final two events of 2020, for Winchester and West Horsley Place, due to the Covid-19 situation, but we remain "Good to go" for when things eventually pick up.

In the run up to Christmas please consider buying from small businesses this year as more than ever before they need your support. Many craftmakers and artists have been unable to sell directly to the public this year with so many events being cancelled. However, they do have websites and social media pages where you can often buy direct. If you use the online virtual listings and Show Guides for our cancelled events you'll be buying from the person who has designed and made the product themselves.


A virtual version of our 2020 West Horsley Place event is available here.

Why Visit A Craft In Focus Event:

RHS Hyde HallOur events have become widely recognised for presenting a stunning and varied choice of contemporary work. The fairs present highly talented exhibitors who have been selected for their superb and innovative craftsmanship and have a genuine passion for the work they create.

  • See and purchase from an exciting range from both emerging British talent as well as more established designer makers. Commissioning special items is welcomed from many of the exhibitors, allowing you to purchase something that is truly unique and special to you, and often offers an opportunity to be involved in the creative process.
  • Meet contemporary craftmakers to purchase something special that has been designed and handcrafted in the UK rather than mass-produced overseas.
  • Discuss the designs with the makers and discover how the work is created and what provides the makers with their inspiration.
  • Purchase unique products of a quality that is not seen amongst the mass produced items on the high street.

Our rigorous selection process ensures only the very best makers are selected, and our reputation for bringing together such a wealth of talent in one place is unrivalled.
