Amazing news - Beads up North is saved! (10/11/19)
We’re delighted to let you know that two of our regular traders have decided to keep Beads up North going!
Nigel from Mr Bead is going to run the shows with the support of Jonny from The Southampton Bead Shop.
We’re just in the process of transferring everything over to them at the moment so keep an eye out for more news soon.
We wish Nigel and Jonny well and hope you’ll continue to support the Beads up North fairs - and hopefully this will help you to keep beading!
Gordon, Emma and Lucy

There is space for a few new exhibitors, if you are interested, booking details will soon be available. The new fair will also incorporate lace & textile makers in the smaller hall.
Message from Gordon, Emma and Lucy
First of all we’d like to say thank you to each and every one of our loyal traders and customers for your support and enthusiasm for our Beads Up North Festivals.
We’ve been running our events for 12 years now and we’d like to announce that the Festival at the end of September was our last one.
We’ve all thought long and hard about it however Emma and Lucy are very busy with their full time jobs and Gordon would like to start to take things a bit easier so we don’t feel we can continue to run the festivals.
We’ve had a great 12 years, and those of you who remember Tessa, will know we’ve ran these festivals as a family in her memory. We’re sure she’d have been proud that we’ve encouraged lots of people to get beading, especially Up North!
Thanks again for all your support and please keep beading!
