If you make and sell lovely craft items, we're interested in hearing from you for the fifth Big Craft Event on Sunday 18 November 2018. 

We do not allow any bought-in; this is a 100% handmade and crafted event. No gift retailers, antiques / collectables or sellers-on, please. 

You must have made your stock yourself, and you must be prepared to attend yourself. This is because we believe people want to find craft at craft events, and being able to chat to the person who made the item they are thinking of buying really adds to their experience.

The booking is for the trestle table, not the floor space.

We will provide you with one trestle table and two chairs. 

Setting up is on the day; packing away cannot commence before 4pm (when the event closes). 

The event will be well promoted.

If you would like to attend, please email amy at precursor dot co dot uk asap describing what your craft is, plus including a link to your website / facebook page or attaching low res (less than 5mb in total) images of your work. This is purely so we can make sure there are not too many clashes plus we love to see what you make!

If your application is successful and we are able to book you in, you will be sent notes and a booking form which you will need to return with payment. 

Thank you!

Feedback from our 2016 exhibitors:

“Well.......you've done it again! A big thank you to everyone involved in the organising and running of the Big Craft Event. Great day and I certainly struck lucky with lovely neighbours and the position of my stand.”

“Just to say thank you to you, Steve and the team for a really great, well organised Craft Fair. It was a lovely atmosphere and really nice to see the different ideas in the workshop area.”

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for allowing me to trade for the first time at The Big Craft Event.  I thought it was very well organised, I know from experience that when an event runs smoothly (which it did), there has been a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes, and I really do appreciate that.”

“It was a successful day for my small business, I met many new customers.”

“Just wanted to say what a brill day it has been and thank you for all your help and support.”

“A Big Thank You to you and all The Team for all your hard work on Sunday. The zone arrangement worked very well again, and helps enormously when parking to unload.”

“Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for organising the event!  General feedback from the visitors was really good, lots of returning visitors and also lots of new ones too! Some travelled from Derby and Nottingham so word has spread! Lots also commented (positively) on the new workshops.”

“Thank you for a lovely day!”

“I just wanted to thank you for such a well organised event. I was unsure how the extra space would affect sales, but your event has been my best to date on takings. Wifi was good.”

“I couldn't log on (to wifi) but was rescued by your kind staff and didn't have any problems taking card payments, so I'm a very happy bunny!”

“Thank you it was a fabulous day we did really well not only with sales but also networking. So was a very successful day for us.”

“Thank you to you and all of the team who put on such an amazing event which I thoroughly enjoy being part of! I had a fantastic day. Everything worked fine for me and I think everything was explained thoroughly in your e-mails. Well done on organising a very well run and well attended event which must involve an enormous amount of very hard work which is much appreciated by the vast majority of us stall holders.”

“I wanted to congratulate you on a good set up, with a good load of people coming in.”

“It's thanks to you and your team that the day goes so smoothly.”

“Just want to say thank you! Everything was so well organised; you gave me personally a huge boost of confidence.”

“Thanks for organising the Big Craft Event. It was my first time there and I thought the atmosphere during the day and during set up was really good.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed the show and had absolutely no problems at all.  We were delighted with the footfall, we didn’t have a moment when we were quiet. The amount of space we had behind the stall was perfect and the overall running of the show was amazing.  We would definitely like to book again for next year as our products were really well received. “

“Thank you for a fabulous day as usual.  Always kept so easy for us all as it is planned so beautifully.”

“Just wanted to say thanks for the email, but an even bigger thank you to you and all your team for the superb effort and organisation that you have put into the (showground event). I have to say that your events are organised and promoted as well as any events that I have attended since I started 'doing the rounds' three years ago.”

“Thanks again for all your efforts - we had a really successful Sunday. The WiFi was a Godsend and worked like a dream ... it makes SUCH a difference to be able to process card payments quickly and reliably. We felt like the day flew by, particularly because there really weren't any quiet patches all day (which was great) with a steady stream of visitors.  Karl the table fairy was incredibly helpful, and really accommodating which was very much appreciated.”

“Had a really good day on Sunday and also very successful! I thought the venue and organisation were excellent, if I may be so bold!!”

“Thanks for all your hard work on Sunday it was a great day.”

“A very big thank you for a wonderful event yet again.”

“Thank you so much for the opportunity to take part in this event. I sold two large items and talked to lots of people who genuinely appreciated handmade items.”

“Thank you for a great day and a wonderful spot, all the customers were really nice and many had been the year before.”

“A big thank you to you for the lovely time at the Big Craft Event.  It is always well organised.”

“Just wanted to say thank you for Sunday, although I didn't sell loads I really enjoyed the event, it was so easy to access and the atmosphere was great.”

“Thanks for including me at this event. I was worried that we may not get the footfall up our end of the hall but it seemed a very good amount came up that way in the end. I really enjoyed the day and was nice and warm!” 

“I would like to say thank you to you Amy and all your team for a successful day, well organised and lots of visitors.”
