For more than 50 years Sussex Guild members have been showing their creative creations at Michelham Priory. This year the three-day event will be from 29th to 31st July, with exhibitors in the Elizabethan Barn and in open-fronted marquees on the lawns.

From ceramics to glass, printmaking to woodworking, artisans of all types will show their wares to thousands of people during the weekend.

The event will also include live craft demonstrations, allowing visitors to learn about craft techniques direct from makers.

Admission to the Contemporary Craft Show is included in entry to the property – meaning visitors can also enjoy the delightful gardens, explore the Tudor property, children’s play area and visit the licensed restaurant.

You may find something special to take home too!

Please note: on event days we do not allow pre-booking of tickets online.
