Oxford and York applications now open: Deadline 31 March 2019


The CPA’s  two autumn selling fairs, the long-established Oxford and the much newer York, return in 2019.  BOTH EVENTS ARE OPEN TO ALL CATEGORIES OF MEMBERS.  Closing date for both: Midnight, Sunday 31st March 2019

1. York Ceramics Fair, The Hospitium, Museum Gardens, YO30 7DR. 23-24 November 2019

After 2018’s event exceeded audience expectations and drew very positive feedback from exhibitors, York returns slightly later this year and is now ideally timed for the Christmas gift market. Located in a beautiful mediaeval hall in the town centre, we will continue to invest in marketing to ensure last year’s very healthy audience grows even further. Lighting will be improved on the upper level and a reduction of one stand will allow more space between makers.

See Application form

2. Oxford Ceramics Fair, St Edward’s School, Woodstock Rd, Oxford OX2 7NN. 26-27 October 2019

The veteran event in the CPA’s calendar, now in its 22nd year (!), Oxford is perennially popular with makers and customers alike. Previous visitors will know that as well as beautiful surroundings, St Edward’s School offers excellent parking right next to the venue in an easily accessible site, both by car and bus. As last year, this year’s event will again take place in the sports hall, which gives a good flat accessible space to exhibit. We will make changes this year both to the catering provision and to ensure that there is wifi provision for makers’ card machines.
