Craft Shows at Fort Purbrook
March 31st, April 1st & 2nd (3 day Easter event) 2018
November 3rd & 4th 2018
This impressive Victorian fort provides a fabulous and unique setting for our two Craft Shows at Fort Purbook.
Visitors to these two events will be able to browse and purchase from a fabulous selection of original, unusual and varied products, created by some of the finest craftspeople as well as specialist retailers offering products not found on the high street. There’s a superb mix of unique British handmade treasures alongside a broad selection of products from around the world.
There’s a superb range of jewellery, artwork, ceramics, textiles, ladies accessories, woodwork, sculpture and so much more. There’s plenty to appeal to everyone and all styles and price-ranges are included, as well as some fantastic speciality food and drink.
Enjoy watching some of our talented makers demonstrating their skills and techniques. If you are interested in a bespoke design or you’d like to personalise a gift, our exhibitors are on hand to help! If you’re keen to have a go yourself, why not try your hand at one of the workshops?
If you’re still ready for more, then stay for some refreshments and take a “tunnel tour” to see more of the secrets of this fascinating Victorian Fort and it’s underground tunnels.
The fort is to be found high on Portsdown Hill, overlooking the City of Portsmouth to the South and with a beautiful view of Southern Hampshire to the north. Less than an hour from the M25, half an hour from Southampton and fifteen minutes from Chichester and from Petersfield, this is an amazing setting, in a perfect location. What a wonderful way to spend a day out!
Both our Craft Shows at Fort Purbrook are staged inside so there’s no need to worry about the weather. Fort Purbrook is easily reached and is just a few minutes from the junction of the A3M and the A27. Look out for signposting to get you easily here.
There’s free parking on-site.
