One of the reasons we always pick the East of England Arena in Peterborough as the venue for our annual Makit LQ&N Fair is its central location. This year, we have visitors to the Fair from as far a field as the very far north of Scotland, West Cornwall, Wales and Northern Ireland.
It’s such a complement to the fair and all the traders who take part to know that there are visitors willing to travel the length and breadth of the country to be with us.
It’s always been important to us to be more than a regional fair. Visitors are able to buy textile craft tools, fabrics, threads, kits and accessories from specialist suppliers that are otherwise only available online.
Our visitors love the energy and friendly atmosphere of the Makit Fairs. Each one is a great social occasion for fellow textile crafters and packed full of inspiration for the next creative project.
Peterborough can be easily reached from A1 and A47. The East of England Arena is a 12-minute taxi journey from Peterborough station, which is located on the East Coast Main Line that runs from London King’s Cross to Edinburgh. Buses and coaches regularly run between Peterborough bus station and the East of England Arena.
As a reminder the Makit Fair is at the East of England Arena in Peterborough from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 13th May 2018.
There’s still time to order tickets online for collection until tomorrow evening (Friday 11th May) at https://www.makitfairs.com/shop/ or you can purchase tickets on the door on the day.
