SAW Focus 6 - The Secret Garden Craft Fair

Saturday 19th June 11am - 6pm
"Secret Garden Craft Fair"
The United Reformed Church
Free Entry

Sherwood Art Week begins it's week long annual celebration of creativity with the highly popular, and utterly fabulous, Craft Fair on Saturday 19th June.

This year we are lucky to be hosting the event in garden behind the United reformed Church on Edwards Lane. Not many people know where this is, hence our title "The Secret Garden Craft Fair".
However, come Saturday the whole neighbourhood will know it's location as this years gathering of local makers will be bigger and better than last years. Included in the wide range of quality wares available are mosaics, jewellery, textiles, glass, ceramics, lamps, plants & herbs, jams & chutneys and much more.

As well as the finest crafters Sherwood has on offer there will be a selection of refreshments available. The rotary club will be serving Cream Teas all afternoon, whilst the BBQ will be fired up from 11.30am, with a modest beer tent to the side providing Real Ales, Pimms' and soft drinks.
Inside the hall will be an exciting exhibition of pupils work from Carrington Primary School, so remember to pop in and experience the work of talented Sherwood artists of the future.

As if this wasn't enough to be going on with, we will be entertained by a variety of performers such as Mark Block & The Breezes, The Big I Am and Evening Chorus, courtesy of Folkwit Records, Steel Magnolias, Belly Dancing, as well as firm favourites Alamootie and Aistaguca.

The extraordinary Lady Carrington will be once again doing the honours at the official opening ceremony at noon, however you can catch her earlier as she walks up Mansfield Road admiring all the art in the shop windows.

We once again look forward to the whole community coming together to celebrate what is certain to be a day not too be missed.
