Show your work at the most respected contemporary craft fair in the North.

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 present and sell their work to an eager and savvy audience in a way that suits them and their buyers best.

If you're an established or new designer-maker or recent graduate, and you work to the highest standard in ceramics, glass, jewellery, metal, leather, wood, interior textiles, fashion design & accessories, mixed media, basket-making, product design, furniture, print-making and more, we want to hear from you!

Apply Now

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.

For GNCCF 2024, we're offering bursaries for new makers and first-time applicants who are based in one of Arts Council England's Levelling Up For Culture Places (See guidelines for further details).

Application Deadline

Applications open 1st February. Closing date is midnight 29th February 2024.
