A lively programme of tours, talks, games, workshops, demonstrations and our ‘Human Library’ will bring to life the unique craft & cultural heritage of this truly magical setting, ensuring a fascinating day for young & old alike.

The festival occupies the West Lawn of Salisbury’s soaring medieval cathedral in one of England’s most beautiful architectural enclosures. Not just a stunning backdrop, the cathedral stands centre stage. With contemporary and heritage talks, tours, workshops and activities alongside the exhibitor marquees, the festival acknowledges the historic craftsmanship evident at every turn, while celebrating the design, ingenuity and skill of contemporary makers. Visitors can explore the setting, try their hand at the demonstration and workshop stands, and buy from the best in their field.

There are plenty of activities for the whole family to get involved in. Tickets include everything within the festival programme from specialist tours to creative workshops across all three days.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 Festival!
