Made in North Somerset festival returns
PUBLISHED: 08:00 15 June 2012
SOME of the finest arts and crafts in North Somerset will be on show as part of a three-week festival later this year.
Made in North Somerset will return for its second year, and will include events held across the district.
Co-ordinators North Somerset Council and North Somerset Arts are in the process of scheduling a series of events, while the festival will be launched at an event at Sidcot Arts Centre on September 15 and 16.
More than 40 businesses will be showcased at a food and craft market at Tyntesfield on September 30 from 10am-4pm.
Arts, craft, food and drink-related businesses are being urged to get involved and sign up for the festival, where they could host their own events.
These events will then be included in a festival programme which will be distributed across the district prior to the event.
Speaking of last year’s food and craft market, the council’s executive member for leisure and tourism, Felicity Baker, said: “This was an extremely successful event with lots of positive comments from both displaying their wares and visitors on the day.
“If you’re a local business passionate about what you produce we want you to get involved.”
