Table Update & Advertising

Still more applications coming in and we are very nearly now at capacity.

We are fully booked for Jewellery and Textile based crafts however you may still send an application if you would like to be considered for the waiting list.

All the 8ft tables apart from one 4ft segment have been allocated.

At the moment there are 3 10ft tables and one 5ft segment, and 7 6ft tables free.

We have a good mix of disciplines across the board but in particular would like to increase the number of potters, soap makers and confectioners.

As you may know the Handmade Craft Fairs are a non-profit venture on the part of the organisers, and as such the money raised from the sale of the tables goes towards the venue hire and event insurance with the remainder being spent on advertising.

Even at this early stage, with just over 4 months to go, advertising has been arranged with The Cambridge Corn Exchange Event Guide and Cambridge Matters, a quarterly magazine which is published on behalf of Cambridge City Council and is distributed to about 45,000 homes in the Cambridgeshire area.

Booking Update

The last two weeks have been quite crazy with applications for December's fair pouring in and already all of the 8ft and 6ft tables with power have been allocated.

There are still some 10ft tables with power available - either as whole tables or a 5ft segment.

If you haven't heard back yet from me, this is because I'm snowed under with show related paperwork and have a toddler to care for during the day - but don't worry I will be getting back to you.
