  • Any Fairs in Bristol and South Glos area?

    Hi Any fairs around Bristol and South Gloucestershire area? Been on Stallfinder and they seem to be mostly wedding fairs and some are not duplicating crafts, so didnt even go there.lol.
    Got one in March which I am really looking forward to, so thats good. Ladies night not Fair, I've not done one of these before, but hopefully it will be fun.

    The Central Police Station

    I remember googling the Central Police Station and going on a wiki site. There was then a link to something like Artspace oldspace? and on their projects were pictures of craft fairs in Bristol.
    Convoluted I know but worth a try.
    When I lived in Stroud people drove for miles to use the Craft Fairs in The Cornhall in Cirencester. Well heeled bunch there!
    Good luck

        Artspace Lifespace

        The site was Artspace Lifespace.
        I think there might be a way of getting in touch with lots of artists/makers through this organisation and perhaps they organise fairs. Worth a phone call I reckon.

        Also Stroud Farmers Market used to allow craft stalls and their footfall used to be 17,000 10 years ago. Also Made in Stroud and all the cafes around the shop have cards of information on boards. The Steiner schools have annual fairs well worth attending and Ruskin Mills used to have an annual event too. The private schools had summer fetes, Wycliffe, Kings etc.
        Then theirs the Open Studios events, usually profitable and very good for contacts.
        Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester used to be helpful and the studio holders there very friendly.

        Good luck

          Hi, there's a market in Gloucester on the 7th April for quirky crafts - Google theMADEproject and you should find it. They're on Facebook too.

              Craft and gifts fair in redfield, bristol

              Hiya - we are a company that runs events in the Midlands and have just confirmed our first event in Bristol.

              3rd March we have a Showcase Event at Bethesda Church which is on the main shopping street in Redfield.

              We really pride ourselves on the selection of our venues, and this one is really good - it fronts directly onto the main shopping street, and has lovely railings outside which we can use to attach our eyecatching huge banners (see our photos on Facebook - Lydgate Management).

              As well as great venues and great on the day publicity to attract impulse customers, we also make use of e-marketing, plus have 2000 full colour flyers printed for each event (all stallholders who confirm before we go to print are on the flyer), and we have a dedicated event manager on site all day to ensure everything runs smoothly.

              All this will cost you just £20 to sell between 10:00 and 16:00

              If this event is the success we believe it will be, we will be holding more events here (we try for every week if the venue has the dates available to us) so that our stallholders (most of whom re-book our other venues) really get a presence in the area.

              If this sounds good to you, email us for a booking form - [email protected]

              Hope to see you soon

              Ester

                  We hope we get loads too, but I am sure we will get you to one of our events - we already have 31st March and 7th April penciled in at the same venue. If the first one goes well, we will be there for as many Saturdays in 2012 as we can get. If you can help by spreading the word, that would be great (we are a little surprised that three days after posting on Stallfinder we have had no response - if we post a Midlands event on stallfinder it would be half full by now - perhaps crafters in the South West use a different website?)

                  Good luck with your event!

                    Hi Ester,
                    I don't really know why you have not had much response? And the cost seems ok, altho I must admit I struggle to part with more than £15.00, but like you said if the venue is likely to have a good passing trade its prob worth it, don't know? I'm not very familiar either with the area, I'm from North Bristol. But I would be interested in another date, so if you know when you have another I am certainly interested. I like doing small ones and I like to have a nice friendly buzz about the place. But I do hope you get more people interested and there are not many venues in Bristol. they seem to be mainly Gloucester area, bit too far for me.
                    Maybe, its because you are not very well known to us in this area, just a thought? Good luck, but remember I'm still interested in another date.

                      Hi Ester -about no response from your Stallfinder entry - this is just me but I only look on there about once a month, not every day. I have my stall listed on that site and fair organisers chase me up, so I tend to sit back and fill up my diary that way. Also I've been doing this particular stall for 3 years and I'm on lists. So if I've been at a fair before, the organiser tends to ask the old hands before chasing up any new ones.

                      Hi Lily - have you tried putting 'fairs in Bristol' into the search box at the top of this page? If you pull up old threads on the subject you'll spot the organisers and can contact them by clicking on their names and PMing them. Ask if they'd put you on their list.....and miss out 3 years of hard slog
