Following the latest government announcement that restrictions were not going to be lifted as planned on 21st June 2021, the Organisers for Makers Central have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the show for what they hope is one last time.
Makers Central is a show designed to bring together makers, creators, hobbyists and artists from all over the world, to celebrate their passion in all things creative.
They are back for yet another show in 2022. Can they make this one even bigger and better? ‘Challenge accepted’!
In previous years, the show saw big names like Jimmy Diresta, Bobby Duke Arts, Bob from ILiketomakestuff and the one and only YouTube inventor Colin Furze, along with many other big names from the community.
Come and join us for Makers Central 2022 and enjoy another fun packed weekend for all the family.
Meet your idols, join in and make something to take home with you, watch exclusive live demonstrations and talks from viral makers or simply browse the stands and grab yourself bargain.
