2013 SAW Secret Garden Craft Fair


Despite poor weather over 2400 people came into the church and grounds for the 2013 Sherwood Art Week Secret Garden Craft Fair to enjoy the crafts, sample the splendid food, and be entetained by top local Musicians.

This was the result of months of work by a small army of volunteers, and was complimented by the rest of the Art Week Activiuties - Yarn Bombing, Art in the Shops, Exhibitions, and Workshops.

Even the lead up to the was more exciting than usual as our MP Christpher Leslie came along to encourage groups in the preparation - not once but twice!
