Sark's Island Christmas Starts With A Bang
Creative Sark is joining in the Bonfire Night fun with a Christmas Craft Market on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th November - not long now! Beautiful items handmade on Sark, from cards and knits to pottery and tasty treats will be there for you to browse and buy in the Cider Barn, Sark's cosiest heritage venue. A cheerful lit stove, mulled wine, hot chocolate and other seasonal goodies will drive away the Autumn chill.
You have to think ahead for Christmas gifts on a small island, in case you're posting presents away to friends and family in the UK and abroad. And it's great to get the community together in the Cider Barn as the nights get longer and the weather turns; kindly loaned by La Société Sercquaise, the ancient Sark building is a lovely backdrop for skilled artisans and their wares.
The craft fair finishes in time for a huge bonfire and fireworks on the Saturday evening at La Collinette Field, with live bands, a hog and lamb roast and oodles of toffee apples. It really is the best Autumn weekend to come and stay on Sark.
Craft Market Fri 6th 10:00-16:00, Sat 7th 10:00-13:00 at The Cider Barn, opposite the Tourist Information Centre
Bonfire Night Sat 7th, 16:00 onwards at La Collinette Field
July 11th Summer Craft and Produce Market
Creative Sark held the first public crafty event after lockdown in the Bailiwick with a relaxed outdoor craft and produce market in the sunshine. Not a bad start to the summer!
From the 1st to 15th June 2019, Creative Sark brought artists, craftspeople and performers together for a vibrant fortnight of workshops, tastings, music, tours and markets. People learned, crafted, laughed, cooked, danced and ate together - and even set to in theatrical combat! We aimed to highlight everything that is inspiring about creative life and work on the Island of Sark. Have at look at the gallery to soak up the atmosphere.
