WBW Solicitors are delighted to be main sponsors of the exciting, vibrant and prestigious Contemporary Craft Festival, held in Bovey Tracey.
The Contemporary Craft Festival was founded in 2003 and is a non-profit making company, they celebrated their 10th year in 2013. The event has grown from 4,000 to nearly 10,000 visitors since it started and has become one of the most prestigious and much loved craft events in the UK.
With WBW’s offices centered within the local community, becoming involved with the festival marries perfectly with our wish to support local talent and local endeavors.
On Thursday 8th June, WBW proudly sponsored The Private View and Award Ceremony which was opened by Cllr Jeremy Christophers, Leader of the Teignbridge District Council. Despite the weather earlier in the day, the rain didn’t deter the crowds, there was a fantastic turnout for the private preview.
Sarah Witheridge, Partner at WBW Solicitors presented the award of ‘Best Maker in the South West’ which was won by the very talented Ambrose Vevers. Congratulations to all the award winners.
We were blown away by the talent and craftsmanship that has flooded into Devon for this fantastic three day event. The Contemporary Craft Festival is not only a local showcase, but a demonstration of the wealth of craftsmanship talent that we have nationwide.
The Festival runs from the 9th – 11th June 2017, from 10am to 5pm at Marsh Mills Park in Bovey Tracey. It is a fantastic event for all the family, children under the age of 14 enter the festival for free.
