Made in North Somerset Showcase

 

Made in North Somerset Showcase 2018

‘Made in North Somerset Showcase’ is a market showcasing some of the most talented art and craft businesses and local food and drink producers in North Somerset and will take place on 14 October 2018 from 10am-4pm.

The event, co-ordinated by North Somerset Council’s Economic Development Service, took a break last year but is now back with even more producers. 63 food, drink, art and creative stallholders will fill the courtyards and includes a number of new exhibitors to ensure the event remains fresh and continues to provide an important opportunity for new start-up businesses.

Products on offer will include; ceramics, glass, handmade prints, furniture, textiles, jewellery, wine, real-ale, cider, cheese, charcuterie, savouries and a delicious range of hot food. The market just goes to show many high quality and award winning products are made in North Somerset from the artisan business selling small quantities locally to those such as Lye Cross farm who now export worldwide.

There will be music and hands-on activities for the children including storytelling fun with the Director of Somerset Storyfest, Michael Loader and fantastic local Sea Shanty singers the Barnacle Buoys.

We have a new venue for the 7th Made in North Somerset Showcase this year, Court House Farm, Church Road South, Portishead, BS20 6PU. This larger venue with its charming courtyards, barns and grassy open spaces will allow us to accommodate even more North Somerset food, drink and creative businesses.

Court House Farm is a unique period ‘gem’ that hosts events and 'happenings' of all kinds, and offers delightful visitor accommodation.

Set within a short walk of Portishead High Street, the historic buildings have been lovingly saved from dereliction in the recent past. The originally medieval site is steeped in history, much of it still to be discovered.

The land Court House Farm and its neighbour Springfield Farm (now one) sit on is, according to experts, a classic medieval site. The small Manor House dates from this period and was probably very much larger originally as its early timber elements are now long gone. The bigger attached Tower House once a Court House, dates from the Tudor period.

The soon to be renovated 'Little Manor House’ nestles next to the newly restored, grander Tudor 'Tower House', with its unique hexagonal folly. The huge barn and courtyard, outbuildings and stables all sit within a four-acre site
