The British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF) will open to the public on April 4
The British Craft Trade Fair
The British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF) has revealed a major new development for the 2020 event, which will be opened to the public for one day (Saturday April 4) before the 3-day trade fair gets underway.
The exhibition will take place at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate, a fantastic modern venue where there is plenty of free onsite parking and excellent catering facilities. Visitors will have the opportunity to choose from thousands of new products from the very best of British crafts people and artisans, offering everything from fine jewellery and art to spectacular ceramics, glassware, stationery and homeware. Everything on display is guaranteed to have been made in Britain using authentic crafting techniques, with no mass-market products in sight.
Show organiser, Margeret Bunn, comments: “In its 45-year history BCTF has been open solely to trade buyers, but this April we will open the doors for ONE DAY to the public, allowing consumers to buy directly from the designer makers exhibiting. This is an amazing opportunity for the general public to visit THE largest show in the UK that is exclusively dedicated to British designer makers, many of whom do not show at other public or trade events and cannot easily be found online.
“This is a real celebration of all things British and handmade”, Margeret added, explaining that “demand from the public for British made, sustainable products are running at an all-time high and we want to do everything possible to help our exhibitors bring their crafts to market. BCTF is where people come to discover new and innovative products of the highest quality and they deserve to be seen by as wide an audience as possible.”
Tickets are £10 each and can be purchased here:
