The British Craft Trade Fair, taking place at the Harrogate showground from April 8 – 10, is a must-visit destination event, showcasing the largest collection of British craft and design in the world.
This beautifully presented trade features of British-made gifts, stationery, jewellery, ceramics, glassware and other top quality, home-spun products. Established over 40 years ago the fair has gone from strength to strength over the years and is a firm favourite with buyers.
British-made products have enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity with consumers and there have been several government backed marketing campaigns around ‘made in Britain’ that have helped the cause. Upcycling is very much on-trend and consumer awareness has increased massively with the environmental issues that surround us all.
Upcycling and recycling has been around now for some time and awareness on ‘save the planet’ is critical for our long-term future. At BCTF you can see a large selection of remarkable and quite ingenious product ranges created by very conscientious exhibitors.
Margeret Bunn has developed the fair over the past 12 years and is very proud of her exhibitors, who in many cases are creating the antiques and collectables of the future. “British craft and design has over recent years come of age,” she sys, and is currently very cool with consumers wanting to buy home and gift that is hand made with integrity and passion. Our exhibitors have also become far more professional and much of this has come about as a direct result of our mentoring programme ensuring that exhibitors are ready to supply trade buyers.’
