BCTF Harrogate has been running for more than 44 years, it presents an attractive selection of the best hand-made British giftware, arts and crafts all under one roof.  Differing from other trade fairs in that no mass-manufactured products or products made overseas are allowed.  There may never be a better time to buy British, helping support the UK economy and exposing local talent.  Products with a “made in Britain” tag come with a powerful branding message for the trend-conscious and ethically aware consumer.

The 2018 show recognised numerous Yorkshire based craft designers in the awards presentations.  For full details please see our blog.
