Some of the skills and crafts give an insight into old trades, which have almost died out,
And they can be seen live on all three Market Days. Visitors experience Spinning Wheels, Hand Weavers, Loam builders, Saddlers, Rope making, Armour Blacksmiths, Chain-Mail making, Wig making, and Butter making live. Some exhibiters and artists present themselves quite modern, others in a more traditional way.

Look „over the shoulder“ of the exhibiters and learn more about their work, their ideas and traditions. Experience the high standards of Quality, Variety, Creativity, Diversity and Professionalism.

Your children can take an active part in the proceedings on many of the stands. The varied offers include turnery, pottery, felting, forging, drum making and much more.
