Apply now for Sunny Bank Mills Christmas Market 2024 taking place in the 1912 Mill with handcrafted gifts from Friday 29th November to Sunday 1st December.

Makers creating original, handmade, handcrafted gifts including ceramics, prints, jewellery, glass, textiles, homewares, cards, art and more are welcome to apply.

Sunny Bank Mills is a historic former worsted textile mill, set in the heart of the community of Farsley, Leeds. The 1912 Mill is now an established venue for exciting events aiming to support local artists, makers and sellers, including the annual ‘Printed Bound’ Artists’ Book and Print Fair and ‘Threads Textile Festival.’

Since 2010, it has been developed as a business and artistic community, with a Gallery selling fine art by local and international artists, a textile and local history archive, shops, cafes, artist studios and more.

2023 was the tenth year of arts and culture at the Mills, and in that time supported over 900 artists in 75 exhibitions.

During last year’s Christmas Market, the team welcomed over 5000 visitors through the doors! The event will be promoted via the local press and extensive leafletting, benefit from an established social media presence (over 30k total followers) and will be promoted on the website.

Friday 29th 2pm to 8pm. Saturday 30th & Sunday 1st 10am to 4pm.

PLEASE NOTE – stallholders will be offered the option of taking part on FRIDAY & SATURDAY or SUNDAY.

Stall fees

Friday & Saturday – £150 incl VAT  Sunday – £80 incl VAT

Stalls are 6ft x 2.5ft wooden trestle tables, with a small amount of surrounding space to get out from behind your stall (approx 2ft to each side) & 1 folding chair. Small print browsers and units can be placed in front of your table, but we may ask for them to be removed if they appear to be a trip hazard for visitors.

Large stalls will not be offered this year, so if being positioned against a wall or on the end of a row is a necessity for your stall set up, please outline this in your application.
