Updated September 3rd

We are in Holt Community Centre this Saturday the 5th from 11-4. Check out our Instagram feed @handmadeandcreativemarket for more details. Free entry. no tickets required.

This website is currently only operational for the blog content. I am building a new website over at where we will have a brand new multi vendor marketplace, opening our wonderful creative community up to handmade businesses throughout the UK. I estimate that the full build will be completed by late September but for now you can access the information and application forms for our Holt events there.

Our Halls event on November 29th is going ahead. Thanks to all of you who have sent me applications over the past few weeks. I will be in touch with you once I am more certain about the number of stalls that will be permitted in the venue.

Online market - June 14th and 15th

Follow us on Instagram @handmadeandcreativemarket ( to shop at our first ever online event. we have over 20 talented makers sharing art and craft videos throughout the weekend and from 7-10 pm on Saturday and Sunday we have over 150 makers from across the UK selling with us.

Coronavirus update 8th June 2020 - At the time of writing in person events are still no further forward with regards to information. Even if we are allowed to run I have to assess whether or not the event would be enjoyable for exhibitors and visitors. I also have to consider if it is cost prohibitive to run the event. My public liability alone was quoted at 5 times more expensive this March compared to last March and having to use venues at 50% capacity would mean I am making a loss on every single event that I run. This is without the possibility of having to provide screens or PPE. This reality is clearly why 90% of other events for 2020 have been cancelled already. However, I am not going to cancel until I have all the information in front of me and have exhausted the possibility of having a clear and safe plan in place with the venues. Thank you for your understanding at this time. Stall holders with a space already paid for will of course receive first refusal on available spaces at re-organised events.

Next market - April 4th - Holt Community Centre - 2 exhibitor spaces remaining
