Oak Apple DayOakwell artisan emporium returns!

Birstall’s unique new Sunday shopping experience has six more dates coming up this summer! The ‘Oakwell Artisan Emporium’ sells some of West Yorkshire’s finest produce from independent artisans. Each week you can browse a fabulous selection of stalls offering locally made crafts, handmade jewellery, paintings, foods, vintage items and much more.

The Artisan Emporium will take place in the Oakwell Visitor Centre Courtyard between 12noon-4pm on Sundays 19 and 26 July and 9, 16, 23 and 30 August. Admission is free.

Stalls on 19 July include gorgeous handmade jewellery from ‘Baubles, Bangles & Beads’ and ‘AnnieB’; contemporary macramé accessories from ‘Get Knotted’; original watercolours and cards by Mandy Day; quality hand-knits for children from ‘Cards & Cardies’ and a range of unusual craft products including handmade soaps and stunning felt vases from ‘heatherleecrafts’.

Oakwell Hall’s recently refurbished gift shop completes this unique ‘not on the High Street’ shopping experience. It stocks items that reflect the history of Oakwell Hall and the beauty of the Country Park, including quirky 17th Century ceramics, delicious foods from local makers and delicate artist-painted wildlife mugs.

Oakwell Hall is a stunning 17th century period home which recently starred in the fascinating ‘Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell’ on BBC1. The site also includes over 100 acres of country park, period gardens, playground, café and gift shop.
