The British Craft Trade Fair

The British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF) is not a trade exhibition that will be on the radar for many designers and architects…however in recent years the attraction to attend has significantly increased as the fair has become quite contemporary in its presentation, with more and more exhibitors producing commissions and installation work for professionals.

Over 500 exhibitors make up the fair and some of the UK’s most talented artisans will be on show, disciplines represented at the fair include glass, ceramics, metalwork, soft furnishings, furniture and lighting.

The strict criteria of the fair is that it has to be made in the UK and all the exhibitors are vetted by the organisers for quality of design and finish.

BCTF takes place 6th – 8th April at Hall 1, The Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
