Handmade: Christmas Exhibition & Crafts Sale at Macrobert Arts Centre
Macrobert Arts Centre's annual Christmas sale of arts and crafts is back for a third year! It hosts both professional and amateur exhibitions in their Gallery space, the Arthouse, all year round. Over the festive periods 2015 & 2016 Macrobert hosted a sale of affordable Artworks and Crafts throughout our busy panto season, offering our audiences opportunities to purchase original Christmas gifts.
This year they'll be adding a Craft Sale event to launch the exhibition. It will run on Sat 25 Nov, 12pm – 7.30pm and Sun 26 Nov, 12pm - 6pm.
The Christmas Exhibition runs from Mon 20 Nov to Sun 7 Jan. Open 10.00am - 9.00pm [with the exception of public holidays].
Christmas is a busy time at Macrobert Arts Centre, receiving significant footfall (circa 80,000) for their two Christmas shows and film programme. Expected audience for the opening weekend is circa 2,500.
