The much-anticipated Made in Bristol Gift Fair, a celebration of local creativity announces its return for the 15th consecutive year. Up to 200 talented designer-makers from Bristol and its surrounding areas will transform our venue spaces into a bustling marketplace, offering two weekends packed with unique and delightful shopping experiences.

At the grand old age of 15, Made in Bristol is far from being a grumpy teenager! It has blossomed into a stylish, mature, and well-established creative landmark on the city’s cultural calendar. Since its inception in 2009, the event has grown in stature, attracting both locals and visitors who appreciate the exceptional craftsmanship and innovative designs showcased by Bristol’s creative community.

As our venue undergoes an exciting transformation into one of Europe’s premier performance and education venues, the Gift Fair seizes the opportunity to invite even more makers to be part of this remarkable event.
