Weald of Kent Country Craft Show 2024 promises a perfect bank holiday weekend celebrating Kent’s countryside heritage

The Weald of Kent Country Craft Show returns in grand style for its 40th show promising a delightful bank holiday weekend filled with artisan shopping, delectable street food, traditional crafts, and family-friendly activities. Taking place from Saturday 4th May, to Monday 6th May 2024, at the picturesque Penshurst Place in Tonbridge, Kent, the event is open daily from 10am to 5pm.

This event is a celebration of Kent’s countryside heritage, where visitors come to appreciate the unique beauty of thousands of handcrafted items. The show has become one of the most popular events in Kent, attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Sara Kirchel, Marketing Manager of the Weald of Kent Country Craft Show said: “The Weald of Kent Country Craft Show is a long-standing gem in the South East of England having been in business for four decades. The show’s success can be attributed to staying true to its roots and bringing together the most interesting crafts both locally and from across the country.”

“Our talented experts specialising in Britain’s traditional and heritage crafts, such as basketry, willow-weaving and woodcarving, will demonstrate first-hand their incredible flair, passion and unique techniques. Many heritage crafts are now listed on the ‘Red List of Endangered Crafts’ so it’s now more than ever that we need to celebrate and support these wonderful craft traditions and skillsets.”

Visitors can look forward to over 150 stalls showcasing diverse handmade products, from homeware and living décor, to outdoor and garden essentials, fashion, accessories, health and wellness products, jewellery, art, and photography. The expansive outdoor marquees will be brimming with unique items crafted by talented artists and makers.

Weald of Kent Country Craft Show goes beyond shopping, offering a full day of entertainment for all ages. Visitors of all ages can enjoy live music, traditional craft demonstrations, falconry displays, laser clay pigeon shooting, axe throwing, giant outdoor games, vintage swing boats, and a carousel. Children can explore the adventure playground for free with an adult Weald of Kent Country Craft Show ticket.

The event boasts a food and drink hall featuring award-winning spirits and liqueurs, antipasti, oils and vinegars, flavoured cheeses, specialty sausages, and an array of sweet and savoury treats.
