Peace & Craft Fair 2018

The Yorkshire CND fundraiser is back this year on Saturday 24th November at the beautiful Victoria Hall, Saltaire with a fantastic array of craft stalls, delicious vegetarian food and live music.  This year we’ll have children’s activities in the gym, including face-painting and free circus skills. What better way to do your Christmas shopping; unique, ethical, and with entertainment for the children to boot!

Stalls at the fair are now sold out – please get in touch if you want to be added to the email list to be informed when bookings are open next year.  Excited that there’ll be over 80 amazing craft and information stalls!
