It takes place in Wadsley Parish Church with displays of work, shows of children’s drawings, painting demonstrations, a cafe, and an evening of jazz music with a three-course meal on the Friday night, and a folk night with pie and peas on the Saturday. Diners are invited to bring their own drinks to each event.

Applications are invited from craftspeople with paintings, woodwork, photos, sculptures, glass, silver, textiles and other works to show.
