About Us

This will be our twentieth year and during those years we have grown into one of the major players in the craft and gift fair market, organising important events throughout the country. Whether you have been with us since year one, or are thinking of exhibiting with us for the first time, we wish you a happy and successful 2016. We are doing our part to help you achieve this by maintain our prices at 2015 levels.

Eden Crafts Marquee

We exist and thrive because we provide venues at which small Craft and Gift businesses can promote their products, and all of our events and venues have been selected to further this aim. We organise two main types of event;

  1. Large Craft and Gift exhibitions, usually housed in marquees, at agricultural shows and other major events. We are long established at many of these events but we are constantly looking for new ones.
  2. Christmas Craft and Gift Fairs at major town centre venues. These include our 'flagship' event – the Royal Kingston Christmas Fair.

We grow through innovation and by constantly seeking new venues. For 2016 we have a brand new event, the Lincolnshire County Flower Show which is to be held at the Lincolnshire Showground, always a happy hunting ground for our exhibitors. We will also be visiting an established event in Essex for the first time, in addition, the CLA Game Fair has been re-vamped as The Game Fair - Festival of the Countryside, with new investors and an exciting new look.

The list of events that follows is up to date at the time of going to press, it is recommended that you monitor our website regularly to check for any later additions.

We have a solid core of long established exhibitors, but we are always looking out for new ones. We particularly welcome applications from those with high quality crafts and gifts that will add further variety to our fairs.

Though slightly down on 2014, when we were blessed with wonderful weather throughout the summer, 2015 has generally been successful for our exhibitors. It is still important, however, to apply the highest possible standards to every aspect of our presentation to the public. We at Eden Crafts are constantly striving to improve our presentation and, therefore, the environment in which we are inviting you to trade. We ask that you do the same with your own displays. In particular, we ask all exhibitors to provide vertical panels, approximately 2m high, which will cover the back and two sides of the stand. Tables must be covered with an attractive cloth that reaches the floor on all sides.
