Our Gift Fair will now feature up to 150 local designers over our three dates, transforming the majestic foyer at Colston Hall into a vast emporium of unique handmade gifts. With artists and designers showcasing jewellery, toys, ceramics, art and home accessories, the Made in Bristol Gift Fair is the perfect place to find innovative locally-made products that bring the personal touch to Christmas gift giving.

If you are based within 50 miles of Bristol and create wonderful gifts, make tasty treats or design seasonal floral arrangements then this is the event for you. Our footfall and public awareness has continued to grow strongly year on year and we pride ourselves in running an organised event that is a pleasure to attend, whether you are taking part or as a visiting shopper.
Colston Hall is a well known venue with great access to all levels and great transport connections (including an affordable car park next door) - Which other Gift Fair can claim a golden building?
We would be more than happy to share the results of the participants survey we carried out after last years event with you but here are a few of the anonymous testimonials we gathered to whet your appetite:
"This is without a doubt my favourite event to do in Bristol."
"The Gift Fair is a well known destination for shoppers now, where people know they will find the quality, variety and creativity of local makers."
"This Fair gave me a great opportunity to meet customers in a fantastic setting. It was my best days trading of 2013 and will give me the cash flow to develop my business in 2014. The event really showcased the talent that is in and around Bristol and was a cut above the usual fairs in quality of stalls, organisation and venue. A number of my customers commented that they always attend because they know they will be able to source high quality gifts from local makers at good prices."
"Footfall seems to be increasing each year as people get to know the event and see it as a really good oopportunity to buy interesting gifts all in one place. The quality of the items on sale is consistently high and visitors always seem very impressed."
