Whats on in The Gower
The Brecon Craft Fair takes place in the town’s historic market hall and is held every third Saturday of the month between 9am and 5pm. Each and every month, up to around 60 traditional and independent craft workers and artists set up shop in the market hall, resulting in a truly unique collection of Welsh arts and crafts; from beautiful handmade soft furnishings to hand painted jewellery and locally crafted Faberge style eggs.
Not only will you be able to pick up a handful of goodies, you’ll also be able to talk to artists and craft workers themselves and find out just how much effort went into creating each and every item. You will be pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of the crafts on offer, but also by the fact that you can pick things up for the fraction of the price you’d find elsewhere.
Venue: Brecon Market Hall, Brecon LD3 9AH
Free Entry Every 3rd saturday of the month
