Details of the 2018 Eardisland Craft Fair and how to book stalls
The 3rd annual Eardisland Craft Fair will be held on Saturday 13th October '18 between 10am - 4pm.
This is one week earlier than previous years, but avoids a clash with our friends who run the longer standing Leominster Apple Fair.
The venue, St Mary's Church, remains the same, with additional space in better equipped marquees (each 10m x 6m) than last year, in the church grounds.
This event was formed in 2016, with stalls (23) which were limited to the church only. The event attracted 285 paying members of the public.
In 2017 the event was enlarged to accommodate a further 16 stalls in two marquees in the church grounds. Despite awful weather with strong winds and driving rain the event attracted 335 hardy souls.
25 stalls in the church and a further 18 in two marquees in the church grounds, each measuring 10m x 6m, which will be joined together to form one space.

Once again a hot breakfast will be on offer in the nearby village hall for any early arrivals, with burgers and hotdogs being sold in the church grounds at lunchtime.
The organisers very much hope that those booking space in the church will take up the offer of setting up their stall in the afternoon of Friday 12th October, however we understand if this should not be possible.
Both the public and stallholders will be asked to park their vehicles on the recreation ground, a 2 minute walk from the church. Please note this area will be stewarded throughout the day.
The nearest toilets are located in the village hall, a 200 yard walk.
Public admission to the show is £1, which entitles the bearer to a free hot drink in the village hall.
Stallholders will be offered every assistance by a team of volunteers to unload their vehicles prior to the event and with loading afterwards.
Unless you notify us in advance each space will be contain one 6’ table and one chair.
All stallholders will, on the day, be issued with a pass out ticket to ease their passage at the entrance.
There will be a raffle at the event and the organisers would be grateful to receive any donations you may be willing to offer.
All profits from the event will be equally divided between Eardisland Parochial Church Council and Eardisland in Bloom.
