Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair opens this weekend!

GNCCF Manchester 11th-14th October, Upper Campfield Market Hall, M3 4FN.

A huge thank you to everyone who visited the GNCCF last weekend and to our exhibitors for putting on a fabulous show. We hope you enjoy the pieces you have bought.

Don't forget if you are still contemplating a purchase you can still contact the makers direct via their profile page - browse the exhibitors here

Thanks also for supporting our charity raffle.  You helped us raise over £1000 to fund craft therapy workshops for vulnerable adults at the Oasis Centre Gorton. We and Oasis are overwhelmed and so grateful.  Thank-you.

Our next show will be the  Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair on Sunday 2nd December at Altrincham Town Hall.  Just in time for Christmas, the LNCCF will feature some familiar makers and a sprinkle of new faces and will be a lovely opportunity to buy unique and beautiful presents.  Save the date!

The GNCCF is a not for profit event, supported by Arts Council England through the National Lottery Grant for the Arts.




2018 has been a busy year, with two other fairs and our outreach work in GNCCF Live


GNCCF Live with The Oasis Centre Gorton

In March 2018 we took GNCCF Live to the Oasis Centre in Gorton to enable people who don't normally engage in the arts, to take part in workshops with GNCCF exhibitors. We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Arts Council funding to deliver a year's programme of workshops for clients of this wonderful charity.
