The Beadwork Fairs are the UK’s longest-running independent jewellery making events.

We have been organising Beadwork Fairs since 2001, when we ran our first Beadwork Fair in Dorking Halls, Surrey. Since then, we have introduced many new events, including our well known Harrogate and Newmarket Beadwork Fairs.

Our fairs have always aimed to give designers and small independent retailers an affordable opportunity to market their business and products to new and existing customers.
In this age of internet shopping, it also gives the customers a chance to meet the people behind the website they buy from.

We always have a good mix of retailers to cover all aspects of the market no matter the size of the fair. They are all experts in their field, not just salespeople; they are always happy to give advice, tips, demonstrations and recommendations. We are a close-knit community, and the majority of us have been working together for over 20 years; however, we welcome new businesses with something new and different to bring to our customers, especially designers of new products.

Come along and be inspired to make your own jewellery or add beads and semi-precious stones to your decorative home crafts and homemade gifts. Our bead fairs have a lovely atmosphere and are always inspirational.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our world of beautiful beads.
