Championing Craftspeople

This is the website for the 2015 Spring Fair, which has now happened. We will be launching our brand new Spring Fair website in November.

At Country Living we champion craftspeople and small businesses and that's what the Spring Fair is all about. We have fabrics, furnishings, accessories and more, all from hand-picked makers. See here for our Meet the Maker page to read about some of the wonderful talents you'll discover at the Fair, or visit our Sneak Peek page and see a selection of the products that will be available to buy. You might also be interested in visiting our Newcomers Market page to discover some of our brand new exhibitors. 

Alongside shopping there are plenty of features to add to your day out. Visit our brand new Country Living Theatre for panel discussions and lifestyle tips from prominent figures and contributors to the magazine; try everything from block printing to chocolate making in our Craft & Create Rooms or be wowed by our glorious ‘glamping’ inspired garden- complete with vintage VW camper van. And if you're looking to relax, why not book lunch in the brand new Country Living Restaurant, or enjoy a glass of fizz in our champagne lounge.

So come along, enjoy a colourful day out that will lift your spirits after winter, meet our makers and pick up inspiring ideas for simple country style.
