Hundreds of clothing, craft, jewellery, food, travel and gardening exhibitors have already reserved their stands. With plenty of demonstrations, workshops and seminars to choose from this will no doubt be an inspiring event.

Tickets for workshops are priced at £8 or £14 for 1 hour or 1 ½ respectively. 

Advance booking is strongly advised.


The opening hours for each day are: 10.00am – 5.00 pm.

There is free parking at Alexandra Palace for a limited number of cars.

As the car parks do get very full, it is strongly advised that you take public transport to the show if you are not coming as part of an organised coach party.

Although parking is free your coach or minibus will need to obtain a parking pass if your group is travelling to the show by either coach or minibus.  Details of how to apply for one of these will be available on the ticket booking site.

The Fair cloakroom will be clearly signposted from the Palm Court.  You will be able to leave coats and luggage for £1 per item.

Mobility scooters, wheelchairs and pushchairs are allowed at the Fair and you can hire a wheelchair at the venue.
