It’s all set fair for Burnham crafts
The Burnham Market Craft Fair (which is now its 43rd year) will be held on Saturday, August 18.
The popular event, which is fundraising for the community, is entirely run by local volunteers.
Funds are raised by stallholders contributing 10 per cent of their takings. Profits are donated to local charities and good causes.
This year’s craftspeople have been selected from nearly 200 applications and have been hand-picked for quality and variety.
Traditional, local and regional crafts will be displayed alongside items by local artists, designers and artisans on over 100 stalls in the centre of the village, on the greens, from 10am-5pm.
Stalls include original art, jewellery, plants, textiles, ceramics, cards, woodwork, pottery, basketwork, sculpture, furniture, glassware, photography, aromatherapy, leather-craft, metalwork and more.
There will be a hog roast, face-painting and a Punch and Judy show will entertain children. There are several refreshment stands, plus tea and cakes at St Mary’s Church, Westgate, plus the permanent eateries and specialist shops that make up this charming and attractive village.
There’s ample parking in the new North Street car park, on the Creake Road playing field, or you could visit via the Coasthopper bus.
