Pottery, jewellery, art, clocks and more will be on sale at a popular annual craft fair between Droitwich and Worcester on Saturday 18th November.

Hare by Julie HuntThe event, held at Worcestershire Wildlife Trust’s Lower Smite Farm, showcases nearly twenty local artists and craftworkers. The local conservation charity will also be selling their Christmas cards, calendars and virtual gifts.

Mike Perry, organiser of the craft fair, explained “We’re really looking forward to the return of this popular event.

“It’s a great opportunity to buy locally produced and handmade gifts for loved ones this Christmas; it’s also a chance to get ahead of the Christmas rush.

“There’s something for everyone – from potters and artists, jewellers and carpenters to soap-makers and photographers, knitters and jam-makers.

“There will be bird and bug houses for sale, fabric gifts and decorations as well as clocks made from recycled materials, leather accessories and wooden kitchen utensils.”

Retail therapy & nature trail

Hot drinks, cakes and mince pies will be available throughout the day. Entry is free and plenty of car parking is available on site.

“Mike added “The craft fair is a really relaxed place to browse and buy those special gifts and treats – stalls are spread throughout our historic barn and converted dairy and hayloft.
