Garden Show Ireland Craft NI Craft Pavilion Call-Out

24 March 2023

Deadline: April 3, 2023


We’re almost at spring, and it feels like we can think ahead to summer selling opportunities! 

Craft NI is delighted to partner with Antrim & Newtownabbey Council and Garden Show Ireland to bring contemporary NI craft makers to this annual outdoor celebration of plants and gardens. 

Following successful models in other high profile garden shows, we are working with the Council and GSI to provide the Craft Pavilion in the show, and we are now inviting applications from makers to sell and/or provide craft demonstrations onsite. 


Tell me about Garden Show Ireland:

An annual event in the beautiful Antrim Castle Gardens, all participants will benefit from significant event promotion from the organisers, Antrim & Newtownabbey Council and Craft NI. 

This is a ticketed event with selling plants and associated relevant goods along with a lively programme of demos, masterclasses and artisan foods. The Craft Pavilion will be a destination within the overall show. 

In 2023, the show’s organisers expect the talks and masterclasses from show ambassador Diarmiud Gavin to attract significant attention, building on previous years’ footfall of approx. 25,000 visitors over the weekend.
