We will be back… 


As I’m sure you are all very aware this pandemic doesn’t seem to be going away and is now disrupting 2021 further, we have planned dates for this year but at present it is impossible to say what will be going ahead.  The government are supposed to be making announcements during the week commencing 15th February which will hopefully give us all an idea of the future and how restrictions will start to (hopefully) be lifted.  We are so looking forward to be able to start our events but with current restrictions this is impossible and we have decided that until social distancing has been relaxed that we won’t be able to host our events, we pride ourselves on hosting high quality events that always have a lovely community feel about them amoungst both visitors and exhibitors, I’m afraid social distancing, one way systems, Covid measures and endless rules tend to dampen the feel of our craft markets and we would rather wait and be able to host our usual events.

So, in the meantime we will keep our fingers crossed, we will be back but only when the time is right.  Please keep an eye on our website and FB page for any further information and possible dates, once we get the go ahead we will open up the booking system, we look forward to this day!!

What they say

"Thanks for a fab event Saturday in Hadleigh - hope to be at another one of your events soon. keep us posted for the October hadleigh one too please. thank you kindly x"

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday.  It was my first fair with you and I hope to do more in the future.  You certainly have a good footfall, which is all we can really ask as stallholders, it's then up to us to sell!"

"I really enjoyed today at Hadleigh and I have got home and my online shop at etsy, has had loads of views plus sold a few more pieces to people who were there today.

So Cogs and Gems would like to thank you and can't wait for your future event dates, thank you again."

"I wanted to say how much I enjoyed doing the Lavenham craft fair.  I have to admit at first I was concerned that there might not be as much footfall upstairs, but it was virtually busy all day, plus I had an excellent spot in the centre of the room, so thank you!"
