Christmas Craft Fair at Long Melford 2022

Always a popular event, we will be returning to Long Melford for an 11th year. This fair will be taking place over four rooms in The Old School, and offers shoppers a wonderful choice of beautifully designed and handcrafted gifts for Christmas.

This event showcases quality handmade crafts, with 40 makers and artists from the East Anglian region selling a range of items to suit all pockets. Makers include Capricorn Crafts, makers of wooden toys and gifts; woodturner Glyn Hall; glass by the Little Lime Design Company; Mystic Tapir Illustrations; The Candle Maker; Peter Deans Ceramics, English Spirit Distillery and Nanuk Jewellery. A full list of makers will be on our website a week before the event.

Many stallholders take commissions and so this event gives shoppers the opportunity to place bespoke orders in good time for Christmas.

Please note that not all stallholders take card payments and so it is advisable to bring along some cash to the fairs.

There will be a refreshments available on the day provided by Zoe from https://www.facebook.com/vintageandcreamsuffolk. In addition to lots of lovely cake, there will also be bacon and other sandwiches to choose from.

There is a large public car park next to the venue, for which they ask for a donation.

Covid – we are advising visitors to our fairs to check our website/social media pages before an event as any notices relating to changes in restrictions/cancellations will be posted here.

Long Melford is a beautiful village which attracts many visitors from the UK, and further afield, who come to look round it’s great shops, lovely surrounding countryside and historic attractions such as Melford Hall and Kentwell Hall.

The High Street (Hall Street) is full of old, historic buildings which house restaurants and pubs and a range of shops selling antiques, clothes, homewares and more.

The Old School is a lovely old building just at the end of Long Melford’s High Street (Hall Street), opposite Melford Hall. It has 4 rooms, which include a cafe area, and there is a car park, which asks for a donation, for the village literally a minutes walk away plus ample parking on the High Street as well. There is also sufficient parking at the Old School itself to accomodate all stallholders.
