craftfairs-wales.co.uk

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.

 

Note of caution to crafters

Remember this site is for your use, but it is not a recommendation. These events are published on here in good faith so common sense and caution need to be applied at all times. Try to visit a craft fair before you book, talk to crafters  and check out general competition. Try not to pay for more than one event at a time with an organiser, give yourself a chance to see if it going to work for you. Just be careful whilst you are finding your way around. There are plenty of facebook groups who will give you their opinion on craft fairs, organisers and i imagine this site as well. It is very tough out there at the moment so making a profit is not always possible, and loosing money is a distinct possibility.

Craft Fairs however, are fun, filled with great people and people who work very hard to ensure that those who attend have a chance to make some money. What you need to do is find out which ones work for you , and this is not simple.

all the best for 2014

You my find this really useful when completing risk assessment forms

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
