Crosspool Festival

( Crosspool Festival Week, Friday June 30th to Sunday 9th July 2023)

Art, Craft, Photography, Cake Baking and Decorating Exhibition and Competitions

This summer, Crosspool Festival is holding a two-day exhibition for the people of Crosspool to showcase their creativity in the areas of Art – Craft – Photography and Cake Making.
This is open to anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Crosspool.
There is no theme to follow, just show us what you can create.
There will also be Demonstrations on Spinning Alpaca Fleece on Tuesday 4th and Lace Making on Wednesday 5th ; plus, an introduction to Philately, a fun and addictive hobby of stamp collecting.
The categories for entry are as follows: – ArtCraftCake & Photography:
(two age categories for each)

  • Under 16 years.
  • Everyone over 16 years.

In the Photography Exhibition you can enter up to two images and the print can be any size from A5 to  A3.
They can be print only or mounted and/or framed.
The photography entries will not be chosen by a judge. Rather, the visitors to the exhibition will be able to vote for their favourite image in both the under-16s and over-16s categories.
In the Art, Craft & Cake categories, there are no restrictions on the size and Judges will make the awards.
Details of when and where you can hand in your entries will be announced nearer the time.

Entries will be put on display for everyone to view and admire at
St Columba’s Church, Manchester Road on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th July 2023. Refreshments will be available, courtesy of Crosspool WI.

After the exhibition, Cocker & Carr will display in their window some of the entries in the art, craft and photography categories.
