2015 Event Dates Published Including Events At Our New Venue, Victoria Hall In Oundle

Poster for Victoria Hall Oundle event on 11th April 2015Our 2015 dates have been published and can be found via our calendar on our website or through our events page on Facebook.

We are pleased to announce a new venue for 2015. We will be holding four Artisan Craft Events at Victoria Hall in Oundle, the first on Saturday 11th April from 10am until 4pm. As with all our events, entry for visitors is free so come along and have a look at the work of our talented local artists, crafters and designers. Please have a look at the poster to the right for more details.

Oakham Castle is undergoing restoration work this year so we have no events booked here for 2015 but we look forward to returning when the work is complete.

We will also be using a new booking system for stallholders in 2015:

Stamford Artisans Guild Ltd members will automatically be invited to all our events 4 months in advance.

Three months before the event, our venue coordinators will then know how many stalls are available for non-members and will then start contacting non-members who have registered an interest. To do this, please email us at contact@stamfordartisansguild.co.uk with your contact information, details of your craft, and the venue and dates that you are interested in attending.

If you are interested in applying for any of our April events, please get in touch with us now.
