As big advocates of handmade, we have naturally attended and been stall holders of many fairs near and far including wearehandmade who never fail to impress us for selling only handmade quality makes from local artists and artisans. Covering Essex and Suffolk you won't be disappointed if you visit by the standard of workmanship that is being offered for sale.
Since 1993, Grade 1 listed Clare Priory has been hosting a Craft Fair on the second full weekend in July, which is set in the picturesque grounds of the working Priory in Suffolk. It has grown steadily and now receives around 10,000 visitors over the two days and is organised wholly by volunteers. You will be treated to over 140 exhibitors selling their own work, a licensed bar and wonderful entertainment including Punch & Judy and the regular singer, "Beanie". It is a truly family orientated event which has something to offer everybody, young & old.
