    Re: wanted craft fairs etc in cheshire

    Derian Hospice (Charity) organises a few in Lancashire. Also John from you-craft-fair.co.uk (I think) has some dates booked in Congleton.

    Sometimes I find some just by looking at noticeboards or windows of local supermarkets or shops. Just a thought.

    Hope this helps.

          This single thread has had over 1000 'views' so far, but only 3 replies. This makes me think that perhaps there are lots of crafters looking to sell their wares in the Cheshire area but with nowhere to sell them....... A gap in the market maybe??

          I wonder if the 'made-it' girls would be interested??

          I dont know the area well but I do know that parts of Cheshire are quite affluent........

                  LOL.. I hadn't noticed the original post was from so long ago! I just saw the post before mine and replied!

                  I am organising events in and around Stockport, Cheshire. I am currently organising one for August, and have at least 3 more planned between Sept and Dec, I am just finalising venues etc before I advertise for stallholders! Keep checking www.purplesnailevents.co.uk (Events page) for uncoming Events.

                    well, I live in Tameside as those of you will know from my website name which I can't yet show on here, but I live in Mossley and I'm a Modelmaker. Been in business since January this year and have tried a few different places. I've done two in Stockport. One was a regular at Broadstone Mill which sadly, on the day I went, was very quiet. The other was at the Masonic Guildhall, mentioned on here before. I thought it was well organised, though there were some problems on the day. But the facilities were very good. I've taken a stall at the Saddleworth Civic Hall in Lee Street, Uppermill 3 times now - advertised as a flea market with tables at £12. It's a regular fortnightly event in this busy town and a good feel about it. There are just 2 markets now before the summer break. But I've managed to get a stall on Ashton under Lyne Farmers market on 30th May. Tameside council advertise this as the largest farmers market in the north west. I believe they,re eager to see more crafters there though are restricted in stalls available. There is the old Stalybridge Market Hall which is run by the council which has great facilities but hardlly used. I believe one organiser might be investigating possibilities. OK, so not exactly 'Cheshire' as most people see it, but thought some of this information might help?

                      I too live in Tameside but have struggled to find any craft fairs around this area. I would be grateful for any details that you could pass on regarding the Saddleworth or Stalybridge events. I attended Broadstone Mill on the same day that you did Alan and I tried again the following month but it was still very quiet. The organiser is going to advertise in some of the local newspapers so I am going to give it one more go... third time lucky?

                        I'm also in tameside and have been thinking about organising my own fair for some time. My 'proper job' is sales along with advertising/marketing and I organise our own stands at big fairs at the NEC so I'm well used to the logistics of it all. I'm just in the middle of investigating the best area/venue to have a show so I'll put the details on here when I have them. I've done that many fairs recently, some good, some bad so hopefully I'll be able to put my ideas from a crafters point of view into practice
