12 & 13 May 2018

Makers Market by Hopeful and Glorious

A chance to commission a portrait of your pet from a professional artist, cook up a storm using food otherwise designated for supermarket waste and feast on the finest in locally-sourced street food – all of this and more is waiting for visitors to the second National Festival of Making, taking place in Blackburn, Lancashire over Sat 12 – Sun 13 May 2018. Over 30,000 people attended last year’s festival, with many settling down with a locally-roasted coffee and lovingly-made cake before hitting the Makers Market, with many of last year’s most popular makers, and a raft of fantastic newcomers, announced for this year’s weekend of eating, drinking and shopping.
