Made in Yorkshire - Yorkshire Yuletide Village
16 November - 22 December 2017
'Made in Yorkshire' will not be exhibiting in the Guildhall this year as it is closed for renovations. Instead we will be running the Yorkshire Yuletide Village
within the Jubbergate Forecourt area (adjacent to the Shambles Market). You will see the usual Made in Yorkshire exhibitors selling a variety of unique handmade art and design. A Yorkshire cafe will serve festive treats too!
