The Tour De Yorkshire is now only two weeks away and in Cragg Vale things are gearing up nicely for a busy Bank Holiday weekend.

An Artisan Market and a Spring fete will be held outside The Hinchliffe Arms and St John’s Church, Cragg Vale, on Bank Holiday Monday, May 4, from 11am to 4pm.

This is a collaborative venture between CRAGG 15 - a community group committed to providing some fun events in Cragg Vale over Spring and Summer - and Cragg Vale Junior and Infant School’s Annual Spring Fete.

The market will have a Spring/French feel to it with going up to 30 stalls of artisan food, Drinks, arts and crafts, wandering musicians, games for the kids and competitions for children and adults alike. Accordion, banjo and saxophones will be entertaining the crowds throughout the day.

Organisers say; “Make a Marvellous May Hat - competition judged by Chrissie King from Hebden’s Hat Therapy - or see who is the best (and funniest) French Onion Seller competitions and see if you can win a prize!”

See (website) for details or email for more info.

There will be Maypole Dancing by children from the school outside The Hinchliffe Arms, a hog roast, face-painting, glitter body tattoos, traditional games such as skittles and shove halfpenny, a bouncy castle slide, a grand raffle and more. It is free entry to the actual event and the whole family is welcome. Parking is requested on the main Cragg Road as it will be full and busy down by The Hinchliffe with parking very limited.
