Sunday 23rd April
On the 23rd April, 2023 the Friends of the Rural Life Museum are taking over the site.
We are looking for looking for local people who produce either food products or crafts to have a stall at the event. We would like to hear from you if you sell decorative items, food stuffs and household goods. We are particularly interested in artisans who are creating using traditional methods.
As well as show casing your products we are keen for you to provide a slot in the morning, and the afternoon, where you can either demonstrate your craft or talk about the inspiration behind your creation or business. For example, if you are a local food producer what local influences underline the flavour of your cheese or gin. Were you inspired to start a small business during lock down or did a hobby grow into something more substantial?
The gates will open at 8 am for stall setting up whilst the actual event is open to the public during the standard museum hours of 10 am to 4 pm. As this is a new event run by volunteers there will be no charge for the pitches, however, all monies raised by The Friends, including the entrance fees, go towards funding projects around the museum, charity no. 289150. Therefore, we would ask for a donation at the end of the day from all stall holders.
Please note that, for this event, we only require stalls that have handmade or artisanal foods or crafts with a local element. Please do not apply if your items do not fall into these categories.
Please note that museum buildings will be open to the public and there is a charge to visitors.
