The Craft Shows
Important news regarding The Creative Craft Show in JuneWe have taken the very difficult decision not to run the Creative Craft Show show planned for 24 – 27 June 2021 at the NEC, Birmingham. Although organised events are due to resume from 21st June, we believe it is in the best interest of our loyal exhibitor and visitor base not to run the show. We pride ourselves on putting on the biggest and best UK craft show and we feel that the show would not be reflective of this.Our team had worked tirelessly to implement measures to ensure the utmost safety of our attendees, however we are not able to bring you the full event experience that we pride ourselves upon, so have decided to cancel the show. We are of course extremely disappointed given the preparation that goes into the show from all involved. As we are now back to being a family run business we would like to thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support during this time. Ticket holdersAll ticket holders (including those transferred from 2020 events) will be given the option to transfer to either The Creative Craft Show (and Simply Christmas) at the NEC 4-7 November 2021 or The Creative Craft Show / Sewing for Pleasure / Fashion and Embroidery 17-20 March 2022. You do not need to do anything, we will contact you in the autumn. The November event is our flagship show and we are working hard already to ensure we have:• The best exhibiting companies so you can shop the best brands• Fantastic demonstrations to feast your eyes upon• Show stopping features• An incredible workshop line-up• The very best craft experts from around the world• An exclusive VIP area line-upWe are now eagerly working on the NEC November show and a brand new virtual show – news to be announced soon!
