8th - 10th July 2022 at the South of England Showground

Welcome to the first ever Carry on Crafting Festival. We are very pleased to be holding it at the South of England Showground, which is set in 150 acres in Ardingly, East Sussex, with easy access by road, train or plane.

We’re packing so much into the weekend filling it with all your favourite crafts, fabulous food, shopping and of course you don’t have to leave as you can camp! We’re also dog friendly so you can bring your furry four legged friend with you as long as they remain on a lead.

The Carry on Crafting Festival will include:

  • Craft demonstrations
  • Craft classes for you to book
  • Craft supplies to buy
  • Makers with beautiful finished items for sale
  • Artisan market with local produce
  • Vintage market
  • Classic cars
  • Fabulous street food

Why not make it a weekend to remember and camp on site? Bring your tent, caravan or motorhome and let the fun continue into the evening making new crafty friends.

We cannot wait to meet you!
