Devon Guild at Widecombe Fair '18 - Tue 11 Sep 2018 -Tue 11 Sep 2018

Widecombe in-the-Moor Village Green, nr. Newton Abbot, Devon

Join us at the annual Fair at Widecombe this year!

The beautiful village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor lies between green fields and high, rocky moorland hills in a sheltered valley on the East side of Dartmoor. Widecombe Fair takes place on the second Tuesday of September each year and attracts visitors from far and wide. This year, on Tuesday 11th September, Widecombe Village Green and Fair Field is open from 9.00am ‘til late. Well-behaved dogs on leads welcome!

Take the opportunity to watch some of the demonstrations on the village green by some of our talented makers. There are 6 Guild Members doing craft demos during the day, alongside this there's a ‘making table’ where there will be two slots in the morning and two in the afternoon where visitors can ‘have a go’ at a craft activity: on a loom, green woodworking, beltmaking/leathercare and printmaking!

Widecombe Fair say: ''We’ve always been keen to promote local craftsmen and women at the Fair, both those pursuing a more traditional line, as well as those more contemporary, from photographers, jewellers and potters, those working with leather, wool, wood, slate and so on, through to thatchers, bakers and wheelwrights, also, this year the Devon Guild of Craftsmen will be back on the Green exhibiting, demonstrating and providing perhaps the odd early Christmas present! There will be an amazing range of different people displaying such a variety of skills-not to be missed, both on the Green and in the Craft Field. With more local artists and makers than ever this year, there's sure to be something that catches your eye.''
