Tissington Craft Fair


Independently run, Tissington Craft Fairs are thoughtfully curated and focus completely on handcrafted products.

On each day of our markets we'll introduce you to 11 carefully curated stalls hand picked to showcase the best hand crafted and independently designed products from around our region. The high standard of craftsmanship is sure to exceed your expectations. The supportive and welcoming atmosphere will allow you to browse at your own pace and enjoy chatting directly to each stallholder whilst learning more about their inspiration, creative process and any bespoke ordering opportunities that may be available. .

Whilst many events with a similar ethos to ours are now called artisan or makers markets, it was a conscious decision for us to retain the traditional name of craft fair, which we felt was much more in keeping with the historical nature of our timeless village location.

Located just 3.5 miles from Ashbourne, Tissington Village is steeped in history. Privately owned by the FitzHerbert family since the 1460's and famous for its Well Dressings, we feel immensely privileged to hold our markets in such a unique location. You cannot fail to enjoy a visit to this unspoilt quintessential English village.

All of our markets are held in the recently refurbished Village Hall. The building benefits from a Wi-Fi connection, which means many of our stallholders can easily accept card payments. You will find the craft fairs here regularly between April and October.

Tissington Village is world famous for its annual Well Dressing. We are excited to be holding craft fairs again this year during Tissington Well Dressing week. Find us in Tissington Village Hall on Thursday 9th & Friday 10th May and then again on Monday 13th, Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th May. All opening at 9.30am and closing at 5.00pm.

There is free entry for all visitors to our craft fairs and your four legged friends are more than welcome to meet our makers too!

Although there are steps up to the main entrance, alternative access is available for wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility upon request. Disabled toilet and baby changing facilities are also available.

Please see the events calendar on our website for a full list of makers at each of our markets.

If you are interested in becoming one of our stallholders or would like further details, please apply via the "Stallholder Applications" form on our website.
