Great Northern Events NW Ltd

The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair is organised by Great Northern Events, a not-for-profit company supported by Arts Council England through National Lottery Funding. GNCCF’s inaugural show in 2008 was opened by renowned designer, Thomas Heatherwick. Now in its 16th year (with a year off for covid) the show champions and promotes high quality, cutting-edge contemporary craft and design, giving new and established makers and creators a unique and prestigious platform to showcase their work. An independent panel of craft industry experts select the exhibitors from a deep and wide pool which is always oversubscribed. GNCCF has twice won Small Event of the Year at the Manchester Tourism Awards and has been a finalist in the Northern Design Awards.
