Photos of the Makers’ Fair

Thank you so much to all those who participated this weekend in the Makers’ Fair. There was such a great atmosphere. The event was really appreciated by those who came to visit.

So… to all those setting up, invigilating and helping with take-down – you’ve been stars! We hope you’ve enjoyed getting involved in this annual big collective event. We send you our sincerest thanks for all your help and making this event such a joy to work on!

We estimate that around 600-800 people attended the fair this weekend, some of whom had never been to the building. The community café went really well so we hope to continue to be able to put this on during our events.

There are a few photos below but you can see more photos on our Facebook page.
