BCTF Harrogate 2017 – 2-4 April 2017
The British Craft Trade Fairs (BCTF) are three-day events taking place at the Great Yorkshire Showground in beautiful Harrogate, the Fair will take place on 2ndth-4th April 2017.
BCTFS’ first fair in London took place on the 11th to 13th September 2016 at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick lane. The next London fair will take place on 10th – 12th September 2017.
The fairs are strictly trade-only and showcase work from exclusively British and Irish makers. BCTF differs from other trade fairs in that no mass-manufactured products or products made overseas are allowed. Visitors can be confident, therefore, that they will be presented with a selection of the best hand-made British giftware available in the UK.
BCTF Harrogate has been running for more than 42 years. For the past 25 years it has been in the ownership of PSM Ltd, under the personal supervision of Margeret Bunn who is responsible for maintaining the fair’s high standards and selecting the makers that attend. Margeret’s passion for craft and art has seen her work with British designer-makers for over 35 years, she has helped many hundreds of young makers take their first steps in dealing with retail buyers. The fairs include a dedicated Newcomers Gallery where emerging makers are supported with BCTF’s extensive business mentoring program, ensuring that they are all ready and confident to write trade orders.
