Clare Priory Craft Fair


July 8th/9th - 2017

Since 1993 Grade 1 listed Clare Priory has been hosting a Craft Fair on the second full weekend in July. This has grown steadily to become a very popular event, and now receives around 10,000 visitors over the two days. Exhibitors and visitors alike greatly appreciate the unique atmosphere and setting of the Priory, and many have become familiar friends as they return year after year. All proceeds go to charity, and the organisers and helpers are all unpaid volunteers who give their time freely and generously.
