Abingdon Traditional Craft Fair
Nov 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Abingdon Traditional Craft Fair brings arts and crafts, traditional and modern, to the beautiful Abbey Buildings from 2nd to 4th November 2018.

Following the success of last year’s event, we will have more stalls this year and have curated a selection of dynamic and interesting craft ranges, including pottery, textiles, metalwork, jewellery, art and woodwork. There will be live demonstrations and even the chance to try out some crafts yourself.  In response to popular demand we will also have a café.

Profits from the event go to the Friends of Abingdon towards the upkeep of these important ancient buildings, almost all that remains of the medieval Abingdon Abbey.

Tickets £6 on the door (£5 for over 65s; £4 ages 8-18) or get a discount by buying at “Early Bird” rates online by 15th October. Opening hours 10am to 4.30pm on Friday and Saturday; 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
