Cockneys in Arcadia – The Guild of Handicraft in Chipping Campden
Sat June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In 1902 Charles Ashbee brought fifty craftsmen and their families to Chipping Campden from the East End of London – a culture shock for all concerned. We tell the story of how these pioneers established an arts and crafts tradition in the north Cotswolds which flourishes to this day.
Join speaker George Derbyshire from Court Barn Museum of Craft & Design in Chipping Campden at the stunning medieval Theatrebarn in Bretforton.
Tickets go on sale to the general public through the website at 10am on Friday 9th April and to Benefactors of the festival 1 week earlier at 10am on Good Friday.
