LNCCFThe Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair returns to Altrincham Grammar School for Boys on Sunday 27th April, featuring a fresh spring line up of over 40 specially selected designer makers and artists from the region selling a range of hand-made work, from unique jewellery and fashion accessories to beautiful things for the home.

From the organisers of the award winning Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, the aim of this small spin off is to promote talented crafts people from the region and give them a quality platform to sell directly to the public.

“The Little Northern at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys has proved a great success with local residents and parents of the school as well as attracting visitors from further afield.   This event replicates the standard of the GNCCF and shows that small can also mean exceptional quality,” says Ann-Marie Franey, show organizer.

Angela Mann and Ann-Marie Franey, the organisers, set up Great Northern Events, a not for profit company 7 years ago to raise the profile of contemporary craft and challenge people’s perception of craft.  Their flagship event the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair held annually in Manchester attracts over 6000 visitors from across the North.

“The Little Northern is a wonderful informal setting to meet the makers, chat to them about their work, and buy one off pieces for you or your home , or special presents for weddings or birthdays. This event is all about finding something you love and buying it direct from the person who made it – that’s a good feeling” adds Angela Mann, co organiser.  

WHEN: Sunday 27th April 2014 10am-5pm
WHERE: Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, Marlborough Road, Hale. WA14 2RS
