Join us at Romsey Town Hall for three days, from Thursday 5 to Saturday 7 October 2023, where eleven members of the Wessex Guild of Craftsmen will be displaying and selling their wares.
Artists and craftspeople of the highest calibre will be on hand to talk about their work and help you with your purchase. There is something for everyone, including felt art, silver jewellery, hand-woven textiles, illustrations, wood-turned pens, pottery, willow sculpture, textile art and mixed media. Bring your Christmas list and buy something unique for friends and loved ones – or treat yourself!
Romsey Town Hall is a prominent landmark in the market place in the centre of this pretty Hampshire town. It was built in 1866 and is a typically Victorian building. It once housed the county court and the civic offices. In fact, the original holding cell, where prisoners waited before attending the court, remains in the building. It is so small that today it is used as a broom cupboard.
The ancient market town of Romsey is situated in the heart of the Test Valley surrounded by beautiful countryside. Dating back to the 8th century, it was built on the banks of the River Test, whose streams meander throughout the town. Its name is derived from Rum’s Eg meaning Rum’s area of dry land surrounded by marshes.
The free entry event is on from 10am to 5pm each day and there is free parking for up to two hours in car parks a short walk away. We are exhibiting on the ground floor.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Romsey Town Hall is at 1 Market Place, Romsey, Hants, SO51 8YZ.
