Kirstie Allsopp reveals new friends at 2017’s The Handmade Fair, as tickets go on sale



Tickets for the fourth annual Handmade Fair (15th-17th September) with Kirstie Allsopp and her handpicked celebrity ambassadors are set to go on sale today, (Thursday 20th April) as the three day lifestyle event arrives at The Green at Hampton Court Palace this September.

Kirstie is excited to announce a host of new faces to the line-up at the fair this year including interior designer Sophie Conran and founder of Not On The High Street, Holly Tucker. Returning for a fourth year is a firm favourite, colour expert and inventor of Chalk Paint ™, Annie Sloan who will be showcasing her range of paints and their uses in her very own house at the fair.
Watch this space for more ambassadors who will soon be announced to join Kirstie as well as high profile brands including Swarovski at the fair.

The event brings together Britain’s best handmade products, craft supplies, and artisan foods, and invites lovers of all things unique, bespoke and handmade to come and join in the action. The Handmade Fair transformed the craft events industry in 2014 by becoming the UK’s first craft event that not only gave visitors the ultimate handmade shopping experience, but also put hands-on making at the forefront of the visitor experience.

Kirstie, the celebrity ambassadors, and some of the country’s leading creative experts will be on hand to host intimate hands-on workshops.

Those keen to be the first to snap up the eagerly awaited tickets can log onto www.thehandmadefair.com from midday tomorrow. Last year saw over 17,000 people enjoy a day out at the Fair and this year looks set to be bigger and better than ever.
