Fabulously sited beneath the cathedral’s soaring spire, Salisbury Contemporary Craft & Heritage Festival returns to celebrate superb craft skills both ancient & modern.

Over 100 of the UK’s top designer-makers will be selling exquisite handmade textiles, breathtaking furniture, ceramics, jewellery and more.

The festival occupies the West Lawn of Salisbury’s soaring medieval cathedral in one of England’s most beautiful architectural enclosures. Not just a stunning backdrop, the cathedral stands centre stage. With contemporary and heritage talks, tours, workshops and activities alongside the exhibitor marquees, the festival acknowledges the historic craftsmanship evident at every turn, while celebrating the design, ingenuity and skill of contemporary makers. Visitors can explore the setting, try their hand at the demonstration and workshop stands, and buy from the best in their field.

There are activities for the whole family, and tickets include everything within the festival programme from specialist tours to creative workshops across all three days.
