A blooming marvellous display at a previous Worsthorne Arts and Crafts Fair.

The popular event, which has established a reputation for being one of the best in the area, begins on Saturday (July 28th) and runs until Sunday, August 5th at St John's Church.

There will be around 40 craft stalls featuring a wide range of goods produced by local people.

A variety of crafts will be featured including jewellery, wood, handbags, luxury jams and preserves, hand-made chocolates and greetings cards.

An exhibition of paintings by local artists will also be exhibited and available to buy.

Musical entertainment has become a feature at the fair in recent years and this will be taking place once again.

The first session will be on Monday, July 30th and will continue each day until the following Saturday, commencing at 7pm.

New to Worsthorne this year will be the Contempo Choir, singer Conner Whittam, and pianist Martin Smith.

The Millstone Band, Two Shades of Grey, and Janet Westmoreland’s keyboard pupils will also be returning once again.

Refreshments are available throughout the week featuring a mouth-watering range of delicious homemade cakes.

Doors open at 2pm and the entry charge is £1 for adults, which entitles you to free admission for further visits for

the remainder of the week.

Accompanied children are admitted free of charge. The fair closes each night at 8.30pm.
