Make a day of it in Western Tynedale and visit the 27th Annual Art & Craft Fair in Haltwhistle.
The event takes place in the Masonic Hall on Banks Terrace on Saturday 2nd November, between 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. and is set to be just as big as the hall will take and as usual is almost fully subscribed.
The Masonic Hall in Haltwhistle is not far from the Main Street in Haltwhistle. It is a comfortable, modernised hall with good disabled access and will be well sign posted on the day.
The fair has attracted a varied range of different crafts both from local producers and from across the region. There will be different types and styles of high quality Wood Products, Digital Art Pictures, Candles, 3D Origami, Vinyl Clocks, Original Hand Knitted Woollen Headbands, Button Craft, Cards, Christmas Decorations, 12th Scale Frames and Card Holders, Quilting, Hand Embroidery, Photo Frames, Gift wrap, Various Styles of Jewellery, Festive Products and much, much more.
This year almost half of the stallholders are new exhibitors which will enhances the variety that the fair continues to offer to those attending.
Also, event organiser, Ian Brown will have his CD's 'Dancing with Shadows' and 'Rough Around the Edges' available for sale and Haltwhistle’s Flashlight Films will have a display for those wishing to catch up with their latest projects.
There will be homemade refreshments available all day and a raffle in aid of Local Girl Guiding.
The fair is the longest running and probably the one of the largest art and craft fairs to be found within Tynedale and is arranged at a time when people are beginning to think about Christmas presents. The variety and quality is such that there is likely to be something special for almost everyone.
Haltwhistle is situated in the heart of the Roman Wall country and visitors may wish to make a day of it by visiting the craft fair and some of the many natural and historic attractions in the area.
The event is almost at capacity but few small spaces are still available, for further details contact Ian Brown on 01434 321016.
