    Hi, Is there anyone here from Northern Ireland (sorry just joined). How do you go about finding out about craftfairs and how do you go about getting a wee table to sell cards etc.

    New to this, and would appreciate any help on anything lol.

    Take care

    I would like to know the answer to that, too! I have done a little bit of research into this on behalf of my neighbour and was told to contact my local council's arts officer. Craft NI also told me to contact the National Trust as they do craft fairs at many of their properties. I would be interested to know if there is a good way of receiving notice about craft fairs, though.

      This is the result of entering 'craft fairs northern ireland' in the search bit.

            Thank you everyone for your replies - I hope harleygirl doesn't think I am taking over her thread!

            A friend mentioned the Black Market at the Black Box on Hill Street - has anyone been to this?

                Hi Northern Ireland people,

                I'm in NI too.

                I'm not a crafter but I keep an eye on local newspapers and the internet for Craft Fairs.
                I post them here as well as on, Free Ads NI and

                There's an event taking place in Manchester which might interest some crafters
                especially if they produce items which are related to Ireland.

                It's the Manchester Irish Festival ... Friday 6th March - Saturday 21st March 2009
                This festival is now established as one of the biggest Irish Festivals in Europe.

                There are a couple of Community Markets taking place during the Festival.

                The dates are Saturday 14th March and Sunday 15th March.

                For more information about the Market contact John Flanagan on 07771 577 332

                    How does the search facility on Stallfinder work?

                    I entered a Northern Ireland post code and 1046 matches.

                    Most of them were in England

                    Sites where you should find details of events in Northern Ireland include ...

                    Belfast Forum

                      Hi Christopher,
                      Unfortunately we haven't got a lot of events listed in N.Ireland yet. If you entered your postcode without filling in the distance box to limit your search to 5, 10 or 100 miles then you'd see a list of UK events starting with the ones nearest to you. You can also search by county and event type.
                      If you're still unsure please pm or email me.
