Thousands of visitors enjoy sunny Clare Priory Craft Fair

Thousands of visitors who enjoyed the sunshine at the Clare Priory Craft Fair 2018 held on the July 14 and 15 and were entertained with a range of local foods, craft ales, a range of children’s entertainment, music, dance, historic tours and exhibitors set in the 14th century Priory and its acres of grounds.

“Some of the exhibitors and visitors have been coming almost every year since the craft fair was set up enjoying a wonderful weekend the money raised goes to local charities,” said Fr David Middleton, Clare Parish Priest.

“The Craft Fair weekend is a special time in Clare Priory’s year. As a retreat house and a parish we have visitors all the time but, obviously, never in such numbers. The Craft Fair is always a tremendous draw because of the range and quality of exhibits, and the friendly atmosphere and the fun. It is such a happy weekend.”
