WBW Solicitors is delighted to be main sponsors of the exciting, vibrant and prestigious Bovey Tracey Contemporary Craft Festival. With WBW’s values centred within the local community, becoming involved with the Festival marries perfectly with our wish to support local talent and endeavours.
The Contemporary Craft Festival came about when three Bovey Tracey craft businesses joined forces and formed a non-profit making company with the aim to bring a large craft Fair to Bovey Tracey. The aim of the Fair was to showcase the very best in British craft and the create a new, sustainable and strong market place for contemporary craft but also to bring greater prosperity to the town of Bovey Tracey. The town has a long history of making and at one point up to 15 commercial potteries were running in the area.
This year’s Contemporary Craft Festival will take place on 9th-11th June at Mill Marsh Park, Bovey Tracey, bringing together over 200 makers of contemporary craft including award winning jewellery makers, textile designers, metal and leather workers, potters, silversmiths, woodturners and many more.
What’s more, this year’s festival programme is brimming with workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, children’s activities and entertainment, street theatre, festival food and live music, as well as our two most popular attractions; The Vintage Craft Cinema and The Pottery Showdown, featuring the stars from the BBC show.
