CREATIVE MAKERS FAIRS 2021 at Victoria Baths

15 May 2021 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

CREATIVE MAKERS FAIR on 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th May 2021

Creative Makers Fair

Visit Victoria Baths to browse stalls selling a fantastic variety of unique and handmade artwork, jewellery, ceramics, crafts and textiles. Soak up the Victoria Baths experience as you view the vast pool halls, colourful stained glass, and iconic tiles.

We’ll have the Victoria Baths Gift Shop open and our Exhibition Room featuring the history of Victoria Baths from its opening in 1906, through to its closure and restoration. You’ll be the first visitors to see the stunning, newly-restored stained glass windows in the Females Pool, which were completed in March 2020.

We have reduced our ticket price to £3 for this re-opening event, to reflect that it’s a smaller scale event than normal, due to the current Government Covid-19 guidelines.

To ensure it’s a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, all the Covid safety measures that you’d expect will be in place:

  • Timed entry tickets and plenty of space to enable social distancing
  • One-way system around the building
  • Clearly spaced queuing points where necessary
  • Mandatory face masks inside the building, unless you’re exempt
  • Plenty of hand sanitiser stations
  • Cashless payments encouraged
  • Event has been fully risk assessed and approved by Manchester City Council’s Market’s licensing team.

Entry is strictly by booked ticket only:

  • Adults – £3
  • Under 16s and Friends of Victoria Baths – Free
  • Only attend as a group of up to 6, with people in your own household or support bubble

Last entry is at 4pm and the building will close at 5pm

Please note that the building isn’t heated so it’s vital you wrap up warm, as it’s often as cold inside as outside. We’re very sorry but due to current Covid restrictions we won’t be able to open our Tea Room for these events.

Victoria Baths Trust is a registered charity and all the money raised from our events helps to keep this beautiful building open for everyone to enjoy.
