Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, Victoria Baths Manchester : 19-22 October 2023

GNCCFonline Spring: 20-21 May 2023

GNCCFonline Christmas: 2-3 December 2023

Boasting a national reputation, Great Northern Events organises the foremost selling fairs in the UK – including the flagship Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Manchester and GNCCFonline. We offer makers an unrivalled opportunity to put their work in front of an eager and savvy audience in a way that suits them and their buyers best.

“I’ve never participated in any other show that has been such a success for me and my practice.”  GNCCF 2022 exhibitor

Now in its 16th year, the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair is nationally renowned and is the place in the North of England to buy and commission exceptional handmade work direct from a selected line-up of professional designer-makers. 2023 will see this prestigious selling event return to the stunning Victoria Baths in Manchester, opening with a Private View on the evening of Thursday 19 October and then to the general public from Friday 20 October to Sunday 22 October.

“I finally felt like I had found my audience. I'm full of confidence now that my business is on the right track” - GNCCF 2022 Exhibitor

GNCCF Manchester is complimented by two digital fairs, GNCCFonline, in May and December – again both selected selling events, attracting a discerning global audience of buyers. These online fairs offer an affordable and accessible way to present and market your work under the respected GNCCF brand.

“Extremely well organised and professionally run show that helps to raise your profile on social media and create new customers.” GNCCFonline 2022 Exhibitor

Applications are now invited from new and established designer-makers and recent graduates, working to the highest standards in ceramics, glass, jewellery, metal, leather, wood, interior textiles, fashion design & accessories, mixed media, basket-making, product design, furniture, print-making and more. 

For all our fairs, we welcome applications from diverse and talented makers from the UK and abroad, whatever their background or professional qualifications, and particularly encourage applicants from those groups which are currently under-represented in the craft sector.

All exhibitors are selected for their excellence by a panel of craft experts, based on their submitted images. Successful applicants will benefit from extensive marketing and promotion and a range of affordable stand packages, including subsidised stands and table top/display only options for new and graduate makers. In the event the live event cannot go ahead due to Covid-19 restrictions, full refunds will be given.

Great Northern Events, is a not for profit organisation and is supported by Arts Council England with public funding from the National Lottery.
