Curly Magpie was established in 2012 to bring regular Vintage & Handmade Fairs to the National Forest, covering Swadlincote, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Burton upon Trent and Derby.

Now in our 6th year we have expanded our wonderful events to include our very first Country Food & Drink Fair at Calke Abbey, Ticknall, Derby on Sunday 4th March 2018. Get notified with news on this event by visiting our Facebook Page. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Who are we?

Curly Magpie was created in 2012 as a platform for our love of craft, vintage homewares and secondhand delights. Leanne organises our vintage and handmade craft fairs throughout the East Midlands at Calke Abbey – Ticknall, Ferrers Centre for Arts & Crafts – Staunton Harold, Moira Furnace Museum and Country Park and the National Memorial Arboretum – Alrewas.

Our Promise

Curly Magpie is not just another craft fair! We are a place where all are welcome, whatever they’re selling. We love old stuff that can be re-used or re-homed and we’ve created an event where there is a wide choice of goods – old & new, unique, carefully chosen or individually designed and made by our lovely stall holders. We value local people and hope to bring the community together by using our fairs to promote local attractions and support the local economy in any way we can. If you have an idea please feel free to get in touch, we are really friendly! Promise!!! x
