A Crafty Vintage event is all set to take over Shores Hey Farm in Briercliffe, Burnley this Easter. The home of the charity Horses and Pony Protection Association (HAPPA) is a stunning, rural location with acres of space overlooking the Thursden Valley and a fantastic place to take the family for a fun-packed weekend.
The huge indoor arena will host an eclectic mix of the finest creators, makers, collectors and artists in the land.
Outside in the street food courtyard will be delicious vegetarian offerings provided by The Green Canteen and wood-fired pizza from The Travelling Pizza Company along with a gin and fizz bar plus an artisan farmers’ market.
In the Kids Zone there will be a marvellous magician, crafty corner, make and take, vintage swings and mini car rides and everyone will enjoy the live music and acoustic sets.
Crafty Vintage is a regular social gathering where like-minded folk can meet, socialise, share ideas and gather inspiration.
Founded by a family team, Laura, Dave & Dan Johnson began organising events in 2011 when the trio held a small fair in a Church Hall, to bring together friendly and creative folk to sell their collections of vintage, retro wares, collectables and handmade delights.
The team said, “There are so many talented people out there, that we soon needed larger venues to hold our fairs and our Crafty Vintage Weekenders quickly gathered momentum. We now produce many events across the North West that attract thousands of visitors per day and host areas within other events across the UK.
“Crafty Vintage was formed to create the perfect retail environment for small independent traders to flourish. Typically in spectacular and interesting venues in which the whole family can enjoy.
“Over the years, additional elements have been introduced including a varied lineup entertainment, live music and DJ's. Street food is also very much on the menu, with an array of trucks presenting international flavours.
“We're always open to exploring new ideas, locations and working with cool creative folk.
“We are purveyors of classic vintage, collectables, retro wares, quirky handmade, fine foods and delectable cuisine. Come along and see a magnificent showcase of talent from the finest creators, collectors and artisans in the land. Live music, entertainers, magicians and lots of merriment ensures a wonderful weekend with something for all the family to enjoy. Regular monthly fairs are held throughout the year at stunning locations in Lancashire.”
