This is a FREE service for crafters and craft fair organisers.

On this site we will try to create  a comprehensive list of Craft events throughout Wales for the coming Year.

Crafts of the Valleys

It is our Intention to re launch crafts of the valleys Group from July 1st and our year will run from July 1st until June 30th 2021. This will ensure that you have everything in place for events later in the year. It will also ensure that you do not pay for months which you cannot use the policy.

If things do improve quicker than the Government expect and that group gatherings are Ok then we will move date, but i am airing on side of caution

If your intention is to go out before that date, then  you need to find insurance else where

any question please call me on 01639 790637

Submitting an event to this site

This site is FREE to submit events to and free to use. It is funded by crafts of the Valleys members. If you are attending events and the organiser is not using the site remind them of its existence. It is not only used by Stall holders but  also used by potential customers to your event.  We have also found that other media are also using our details for their own events pages. So please feel free to use this valuable FREE source of publicity

 

To submit an event or course email me, the service is free. However, please supply me the details in TEXT form as this is a free service and unfair just to supply me a poster and say pick the bones from that.

The full list of shows and their contacts are listed below.

Each event has  a contact and you need to contact them individually to apply for their event, NOT ME

Word of Caution

All events are listed in good faith and common sense and caution need to be adhered to at all times. Try to visit an event before you book, talk to other crafters and get some feed back. Do not pay for more than one event with an organiser in advance, see if the event works for you first.

Fire safety law and event traders

Whether you attend events regularly or occasionally, you have a duty to assist the event organiser ensure your actions do not affect the safety of the event. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all commercial premises in England and Wales. The Order states that the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment. The law applies for business premises a charity or a voluntary organisation The Order requires any person who exercises some level of control in premises to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure occupants can safely escape if a fire does occur. When the Order was implemented in 2006, it replaced over 70 pieces of fire safety law and saw the inspection and enforcement regimes move from prescription to identifying risk. To assist event organisers achieve this. The Chief Fire Officers‘ Association has created two easy to use templates for traders attending their events. www.cfoa.org.uk/11544   The first being for food concessions the second for traders and market-stalls When completed as long as there are no significant changes, the form can used by traders for each event they attend. Where the documents questions are Non-applicable please enter N/A
