The action-packed day of activities for the whole family is set to take place on Saturday 9 September and Sunday 10 September, and will bring with it a variety of entertainment for people of all ages to enjoy.

The event, which has been running since 2012, is hosted over both Saturday and Sunday and will include stalls, catering vendors, performances from various local artists, bands and groups; plus, Crafted in Tamworth marquee; which will display and showcase offerings from various Tamworth businesses and heritage craft demonstrations – just to mention a few.

For the first time, there will be a new Crafted in Tamworth marquee, and the council is calling for local artisan and craft businesses to join the event between 10.00am – 4.00pm, in the Castle Grounds.

The marquee will host a range of local businesses all invited to sell their products, food, art, crafts and raise awareness of their business to help highlight just how creative Tamworth is.

“Each year the event grows more popular with local residents and visitors to our town. This year’s event has all the much-loved features from previous years, as well as some special extras, such as our new Crafted in Tamworth marquee.

“I hope that many local artisan businesses will take this opportunity to share what amazing products they have to offer and sign up for a stall so we can share the great art and crafts that Tamworth has to offer.”
